    First time making it and it was very thick and did not have much flavor. Not sure why but will definitely try to make it again.

    Perfect, easy and adaptable. I added leftover ham from Thanksgiving, and it was even better. Going into the YES, AGAIN! pile for sure!

    Turned out perfect. Super easy and taste sooooo good. Even bought a big uncut loaf of bread at the store to make bread bowls with this soup.

    I loved this soup. I’ve never had Panera Breads soup, so I don’t know how it would compare. I made it with rice flour, non-dairy butter, and oat milk. I put mozzarella cheese in mine instead of cheddar, and I loved it!
    left nutmeg out and it was very good.

    My family and I did not like this at all. Do not add the nutmeg, it tastes awful.

    Had a great crop of broccoli this year, so decided to try this recipe. I followed it as written including placing a cup in the blender at the end. Very tasty.

    Perfect! My family loves this soup and it tastes just like Panera - I put an extra cup of cheese and doubled the recipe. So good!😊

    Very Delicious I put red peppers instead of carrots because I didn't have any. Turned out delicious still 😋🥰
