We all love to go out to eat, and we all have our favorite restaurants; SO when we see that there’s a recipe for one of our favorite items from our favorite restaurants, we have to try it. That is exactly what I did.
Panera is one of my favorite spots to eat and I LOVE their cheesy broccoli soup. I found a recipe for it while pinning and gave it a go. It was really easy to follow and was pretty accurate on the prep and cooking time.
The only gripe I have is… it was actually BETTER than Panera’s soup. Why is this a down fall? Because I don’t always have an hour and a half to make soup.
I am all about making easy meals that taste good. This meal tastes amazing, but is just a little too time consuming. You really can’t even step away from it until it is all in the pot cooking together. I am also a multi-tasker so this was hard for me to dedicate an hour and a half to just standing in the kitchen.
BUT if you have time, like on a weekend or in the middle of the night when you should be sleeping, make it! OR drive through a local Panera and get some for yourself. Their soup is still amazing, but not as good as this recipe.
Until we pin again…
