My hubby is a HUGE fan of this soup--originally served to him at a Panera Bread shop. After trying a bowl myself we got on the Panera Bread site to see what was in it and then spent several days in the kitchen trying to recreate this hearty flavorful soup. After lots of note taking, and a small blender mishap, I think we unlocked the secret of the "soup". Note: this is not Low Fat by any stretch of the imagination. Hope you enjoy as much as we do! If you have leftovers it freezes very well and tastes even better once its reheated.
