Broccoli & White Bean Soup

I’ve totally been all over the soup scene lately. In the form of chicken noodle and Ramen. Chicken Ramen… best flavor there is. Why is it I crave Ramen like mad when I’m under the weather? The salty processed goodness is just the right thing for my tummy, I suppose!

But today, we’re not gonna talk about sodium laden, processed soups. We’re gonna talk about a super simple, super delicious made from scratch Broccoli and White Bean Soup!

Yes, my friends, this is a crock pot creation.

Other crock pot creations seen around Slim Sanity:

So, I came up with this recipe when I was on the 7 Day Cleanse, which means NO DAIRY in the recipe. If you are not doing a cleanse, I might suggest stirring in some sharp white cheddar, mozzarella, Parmesan, or pepper jack when you toss in the seasonings. Just because I’m from Wisconsin, and I like cheese! (Fun fact: My sister and brother, also from Wisconsin -duh- do not like cheese. Freaks of nature.)

Ok, let’s get to it!

Broccoli & White Bean Soup





  • 1 lb bag of frozen broccoli
  • 1 16 oz can white (navy) beans + 1 cup, rinsed well
  • 1 medium white onion, chopped
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth (or vegetable broth if you prefer)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • cooked broccoli, chopped for garnish


  1. Add broccoli, 16 oz can of white beans, white onion, and 1 cup chicken broth to crock pot.
  2. Cook on low for 3.5 hours.
  3. Mash veggies together to desired consistency. Potato masher gives easiest results.
  4. Add seasonings, additional cup chicken broth, additional cup white beans, and almond milk (add cheese here if you’re a cheesehead).
  5. Cook on low additional 30-60 minutes until ready to serve.


I added steamed broccoli for garnish and a teeny bit of grated Parmesan


Can’t get much easier than crock pot recipes!

Veggie soups? Yay or nay?
