Panera Bread broccoli cheese soup recipe shows soup cooked in bread bowl tDelicious, healthy and easy recipe. Yumm! This was my first time ever making any type of restaurant soup and it turned out great! Family couldn’t get enough. The key with this soup is making sure that you DO simmer it for 20-25 minutes, multiple times. Before and after you add the veggies. That way, if gets a chance to thicken, mix well, and the veggies get to soak in all that good flavor!
