Delicious broccoli and cheese soup


Broccoli and cheese soup …creamy, delicious and ready to go in 30 minutes!

This recipe was inspired by a little bakery I visited in NYC. Their broccoli and cheese soup with bread bowls was my absolute favorite! It also reminds me of Panera. I’ve tried making it and never seemed to have the ingredients right. I finally have the perfect recipe. This soup is rich, creamy and perfect for a cold winter day. Heck, I’d even eat this soup on a hot summer day. It is just that good! My whole family loved it. We cannot wait to make it again.
