I must admit that Panera Bread is a weakness of mine. If I’m out running errands around lunch time, there’s a high probability that I’m going to swing by Panera, even if it would take the same amount of time to just go home and grab something from the fridge. It’s also my go-to place for lunch dates with friends and colleagues.

My order is the same, every time – a big, steaming bowl of Panera Broccoli Cheddar Soup. Sometimes I’ll get it as a side with a sandwich but usually, especially in the winter, I just go all-in and get only Panera soup. Either way, I never leave Panera without my broccoli cheddar soup.

This sounds like a hearty soup. I love panera, but usually end up with their chicken noodle. I’ve never tried broccoli cheddar before.

Iryna

Panera’s BrOccoli cheddar soup is one of my favorites and I make it quite often. So great you can now prepare it in instant pot.
