Let me start off by saying, how much of a bagel nut I am. I love bagels and I just can’t get enough. I’d much rather dip a hunk of my bagel into my soup vs. a thin piece of bread. The bagel serves as the perfect sponge for any soup and is dense enough, it can handle it! Some bagel shops don’t even serve soup, which is just bonkers.
One of my favorite bagel spots is actually a chain, Panera Bread. One of the main reasons is because their soups are SO delicious. Some of my favorite bagel/soup combinations are:
Asiago Cheese Bagel with Vegetarian Creamy Tomato
Everything Bagel with Vegetarian Creamy Tomato
Seasame Bagel with Broccoli and Cheese
And are just my favorite combo’s on Fridays! The soup options change daily, but you can check on the daily soup specials on their website. Which is a huge help for my forgetful preggo brain 🙂
I went to Panera Bread for lunch last weekend. I ordered a chicken cuban panini and a cup of their delicious broccoli and cheese soup. While the service I experienced that day was below par, the food itself was delicious as always. Being a texture person, I like my soups to not be too chunky or be too smooth…I like to know that there are actually vegetables in the soup. The broccoli and cheese soup has the right amount of chunk :). Dipping the chicken cuban panini into the soup was a good decision on my part and I highly recommend it. I think the panini would also taste great dipped in the creamy tomato soup…I’m a dipper if you haven’t caught on by now! I only wish I had a yummy picture to share, but the only picture I was able to snap was the soup in a to-go cup on the dash of my car.
