On a quest to create the perfect Broccoli Cheddar Soup I spent some time with one recipe I found in The Whole 9 Months Week-by-week Pregnancy Nutrition Guide by Jennifer Lang and another on AllRecipes.com called Copycat Panera® Broccoli Cheddar Soup. Somewhere in the middle, I've found a bowl of creamy goodness chalked full of fresh veggies. I am trusting my husband on this recipe, as I was never much of a broccoli-anything enthusiast as a child; in fact, I have never had more than a taste of this soup at Panera. It wasn't until well into my years as an undergraduate at Virginia Tech that I began eating broccoli, and it has taken the better half of a decade since graduation for me to truly appreciate green veggies.
