    Nice, classic broccoli cheddar soup recipe that was easy to make and came together quickly. I really enjoy Panera’s version and I feel like this was an even better version with better vegetables (not mushy broccoli).

    Made this tonight — and even my picky daughter loved it. I doubled the fresh garlic (and omitted the garlic powder), and threw in a tsp of Italian Seasoning herbs. Will definitely be making this many times. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
