Food: Dinner Tonight – Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Soup

Simple dinner is in order tonight – and the need to toast two-day old baguette open faced with a slab of melted cheese as a side dish – for the family of course because I am going to simply switch up a few ingredients and indulge in the soup.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 2 medium zucchini, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves, plus more for serving
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, or more to taste
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 3 cups low sodium veggie or chicken broth
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 cup whole milk  (for Keto I will use coconut milk) 
  • 2-3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese {more}
