Cream of Zucchini Soup

My mom made this soup and it was so delish. It is pretty healthy too, except for the butter that is! I am sure you could reduce it if you wanted. My mom used skim milk and it tasted great!

Cream of Zucchini Soup

1 large onion chopped
6 T. margarine or butter
6 c. sliced or shredded zucchini (the giant ones with seeds removed work well)
6 c. chicken broth

Simmer onion until soft in margarine. Add zucchini and broth. Bring to a boil for 15 minutes.

¼ t. ground black pepper
¼ t. nutmeg¼ t. salt

Put all in blender and puree. (may have to do half at a time) Put back in pan and add:
1 ½ c milk or half and half
Heat but do not boil.

Garnish with shredded cheese.
