Panera Broccoli Cheese Soup

Home

 Today we are making creamy broccoli cheddar soup made with fresh broccoli and grilled cheese. So let's get started. 



Panera Broccoli Cheese Soup

Broccoli cheese soup is the best comfort food! This cheesy is delicious, amazingly rich, and creamy, and has plenty of fresh broccoli (chopped into small pieces of course) sprinkled throughout.


This is truly the best broccoli cheese soup I have ever had! Better than the local soup shops and chain of restaurants (panera bread). And this recipe doesn't feature any odd, shelf-stable processed cheese like some of those popular versions.


Made with few ingredients, it's incredibly tasty, full of fresh, homemade flavor and easy to make.


It will likely quickly become one of your favorite soup recipes! In other words, it's a staple on your fall and winter dinner menu.


Bring cold weather and a jacket, we're ready! Well it might not be really that, but a warm and comforting soup makes it more bearable, right?
