I chose this recipe because I have three daughters who love Panera Broccoli Cheddar soup. After I looked at it, I wondered if it could be as good because it was so simple. I added a bit of dried minced onion and used vegetable stock and low fat cheddar. I just cooked the broccoli in the stock, then pureed it. It was fantastic! It was thicker than Panera's, which I liked, but for the girls, I might use less flour next time. They also suggested adding some chopped carrot, which I may try. This is a keeper!!

I followed the recipe exactly and it tasted exactly like the soup i had just bought at the store!!!<br/>The only think I will do different next time is double the amount,

This was really good soup. Mine didn't really thicken up so next time I'll add more flour and that suggested carrot.

Right on!!! This IS panera bread soup! I added a grated carrot to give it color and to be just like panera and VOILA! Very nice on a warm rainy day.

This soup is amazing! Easy, delicious, warm and comforting! I'd dare say better than Panera Bread's soup. I did make it wheat free/gluten free by thickening it with a cornstarch and water mixture (just eyeball the amount) instead of the flour. We entered this in a "soupfest" gathering where the competition can be pretty fierce and we won first prize! Thanks for the recipe AmyZoe!
