Panera Broccoli Cheese Soup is a favorite of so many of us. This creamy, cheesy, soup is perfect for a hearty lunch. This is easy to make, we take frozen broccoli, fresh carrots, two types of cheese to make this soup. You can purchase a bread bowl from the grocery store, and you will have Broccoli Cheese Soup just like Panera Bread. Broccoli Cheese Soup is one of those soups that just warms the soul. I love to serve this style of soupr with popovers, or fresh yeast rolls with butter. This recipe calls for the loaf processed cheese food, you might know this as Velveeta, but in this recipe, the store brand is good to use. If you are concerned about salt, use the low sodium chicken broth. Keep your heart at a medium to a medium-high heat, and stir this frequently so it doesn't scorch. If you need to reheat this soup, I suggest you reheat on the stove top, and add a little milk to the soup because it may become very thick after it is refrigerated.
