Panera Broccoli Cheese Soup

Panera Broccoli Cheese Soup

This Panera Broccoli Cheese Soup tastes exactly like Panera Bread’s soup. This is the best recipe for broccoli soup I have come across!! Yummmmmmmy. Just amazing!!

Even if it didn’t taste exactly like Panera who cares, it’s fantastic. It thickened up great and tasted amazing!

I just wish I had made bread bowls to go with it! At least I served it with some crusty bread. Delicious!
