Creamy Cheddar Vegetable Soup
Rinse the broccoli and cut into small florets. Peel the broccoli stalks and slice thinly. Peel and dice the carrots and onion. Heat the butter in a large pot and sauté the onions until softened. Add the broccoli and carrots and sauté briefly. Stir in the vegetable broth and milk, cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Finely grate the cheddar cheese and stir about 2/3 of it into the soup. Season to taste to with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with the remaining cheese.
