When I was younger, I was always pretty partial to soups.
I did not want anything to do with them because they reminded me of baby food. Being the oldest of five kids, I always wanted to stay away from anything that would make me feel like or look like a baby. I figured soup was that so I never ordered it unless I was forced to. My mom tried countless amounts of times to get me to enjoy a good hearty plate of soup, but I always refused. I would even skip lunch so as not to drink a soup.
Fast forward a bit and my new favorite restaurant is Panera. And my favorite item on their menu is Broccoli Cheddar soup. Ironic huh? Yeah, I thought so, too. These days, I have soup in general about three times a week and at least one of those times it is broccoli cheddar. It has become a favorite that never gets old or boring.
I have tried chicken noodle, autumn squash, and creamy tomato. All good, but they get boring. Yet broccoli cheddar never does and I love that about it!
This broccoli cheddar soup is creamy, rich and full of cheese. It is gooey when you dip your spoon in and even if you are not a broccoli lover, you are going to love the taste of it covered in cheese. There is no other way to eat a piece of broccoli in my opinion!
Guys! This is just like Panera’s. And there is nothing more amazing than that, so this has got to be a winner of a soup! I am convinced Panera makes the best broccoli cheddar soup, and now I can have it at home!
