La Preferida Broccoli Cheddar Soup - Panera Lookalike Recipe
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 6-8

Creamy, cheesy broccoli cheddar soup made just like Panera! This easy recipe is perfect for a weeknight meal or a cozy winter day.

  • 2lbs broccoli, cut into florets (keep stems long)
  • 1 can La Preferida Nacho Cheese Sauce
  • 2 cups water (saved from cooked broccoli)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, whole
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp of salt
  1. Bring 4 qts of water + 2 tbsp of salt to a boil.
  2. Add broccoli and cook until tender, about 8-10 minutes.
  3. While broccoli is cooking, add olive oil to a pan and “sweat” onion and garlic. Cook the onion and garlic over low heat, to gently release the flavor without browning or burning.
  4. When broccoli is done, reserve 2 cups of the cooking water and set aside. Drain the rest.
  5. In a blender, combine broccoli, onion, garlic, shredded cheese, and cheese sauce. Work in batches if necessary. If the soup is too thick, add 1/2 cup of water at a time until desired consistency. Add salt to taste.
