Panera Bread’s Broccoli Cheese Soup

Wow! It has been too long since my last post. I have just been very lazy. Time to share a yummy recipe! I need to come up with a healthier version though. I found this on Recipe Zaar.

I love Panera Bread and I love their broccoli cheese soup even more!

Panera Broccoli Cheese Soup
SERVES 4 (I must double!)

1 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 medium chopped onion
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups half-and-half cream
2 cups chicken stock
1/2 lb fresh broccoli
1 cup carrot, julienned
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
8 ounces grated sharp cheddar cheese
salt and pepper

Sauté onion in butter. Set aside.
Cook melted butter and flour using a whisk over medium heat for 3-5 minutes. Stir constantly and add the half & half.
Add the chicken stock. Simmer for 20 minutes.
Add the broccoli, carrots and onions. Cook over low heat 20-25 minutes.
Add salt and pepper. Can be puréed in a blender but I don’t. Return to heat and add cheese. Stir in nutmeg.
