I love broccoli cheddar soup from Panera but more liquid to veggie ratio tastes better (to me).  I also like adding more vegetables.  I find their soup to be too thick and too cheesy.  This is my version of their soup.  I love this style of soup more but I am bias.  Make this soup and let me know what you think. the way, this was toddler approved!

Also, I like using Not-Chick’n Natural Bouillon Cubes.  Its gluten free, vegan, GMO free, and you can find it in the organic aisles at grocery stores.  Since you are using a bouillon cube, you can reduce the amount of salt and other seasonings in the chowder.

  2. Add garlic. Cook for another 1 minute.

    Be careful not to burn garlic.

  3. Add potatoes, chicken broth, bouillon cube, and water. Stir well, bring to a boil, and cook until potatoes are tender. About 15 minutes.

    Note I: the smaller the potatoes, the faster they will cook.

    Note II: yellow potatoes are buttery and creamy in texture. As they breakdown in your soup, it will make the soup heavy cream needed!
