Today was a cold day in Hawkes Bay and thus I felt it called for a cream of broccoli soup… slow cooker style! After a fun filled day with my beautiful girls, what better way to nourish our bodies at the end of the day in preparation for a solid night’s sleep. And the smell of the vegetables with the herbs wafting through the house are what memories are made of! 


1 onion, peeled and chopped roughly

2 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped

Handful of herbs from the garden, chopped (I used lemon thyme)

1 large head broccoli, chopped roughly

2 potatoes washed, chopped

2 cups vegetable stock

4 cups boiling water

Place all ingredients in the slow cooker and place on high until potatoes are cooked, yet firm. (This was about 4 hours in my George Foreman).

Purée in blender. (Or you can use a hand blender).

This recipe serves 4 adults with a side of crusty bread! Delicious!
