You know me... I'm all about easy and mostly homemade meals, especially during the week when there's not alot of spare time to be had with after school activities and sports! That's where Green Giant Steamers comes in! They are quick and easy sides to add with your main dish, or in this case, an easy addition to a slow cooker (amazon affiliate) soup that's ready in time for dinner!
I used the Broccoli with Cheese Sauce for this recipe, but there's also Roasted Red Potatoes, Green Beans and Rosemary Butter, or Honey Roasted Sweet Corn! They all sound like a delicious way to get some veggies in your belly and can be found in the frozen veggies section at your local grocery store!
Let me tell you... this soup couldn't be any easier to throw together. And the end result? Completely fantastic! We had some company over for dinner when I served this soup, and the whole group loved it! I made some garlic bread as a side. I just love dipping bread into my soup! Yum!
So, if you need a recipe to make those busy weeknights easier, you'll definitely want to give this one a try! Enjoy!
