Creamy, filling, and full of broccoli is what you will find in Thrifty NW Mom’s Broccoli Cheese Soup, a copycat recipe of Panera’s best-selling soup.  Serve it with a side salad or sandwich or simply enjoy it by itself.  It’s comfort food in a bowl.  (Click here to get her recipe.)

Sometimes, nothing beats the standby classic of tomato soup unless, of course, you’re talking about Panera’s Vegetarian Creamy Tomato Soup.  Thrifty Jinx’s copycat Tomato Bisque Soup is full of tomato-goodness and is sure to warm your heart.  (Click here to get her recipe.)

3.  Dairy-Free Copycat Creamy Tomato Soup Recipe from Running To The Kitchen

Avoiding dairy? Then you should try Running To The Kitchen’s copycat version of Panera’s Vegetarian Creamy Tomato Soup.  Instead of dairy, her version uses cashews and almond milk to replace dairy in the recipe.  (Click here for the recipe.)

6.  Chipotle Chicken Panini Recipe from Sweet Tea & Thyme

It’s neat when Panera adds new items to their menu.  The downside of that, though, is that in order to do so they remove others, like their Chicken Chipotle Panini.  But you’re in luck because Sweet Tea & Thyme has re-created the recipe and shares it with us – click here to get it.

7. BBQ Chicken Salad Recipe from Looney For Food

This is my personal favorite at Panera – the BBQ Chicken Salad.  I consider it a good day when I spot it on their menu, which nowadays only happens on occasion.  It’s another one of those recipes that gets removed to make way for other new items.  Fortunately, we can turn to Looney For Food and use her recipe and make it at home.  Any. Time. We. Please.  (Click here for the recipe.)
