Broccoli Smoked Catfish Cheese Soup

I used one of the broccoli crowns tonight. I was thinking broccoli cheese soup from the start, but still hadn’t used the smoked catfish I made last week in the Flower Pot Smoker. Why not combine them?

Broccoli Smoked Catfish Cheese Soup

1 onion, chopped
3 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. coconut oil
1/4 cup flax meal
2 cups broth
2 cups coconut milk
1 cup shredded carrots
1 broccoli crown, grated
2 smoked catfish filets, chopped
8 oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Heat the butter and coconut oil in a cast iron Dutch oven. Add the chopped onions and sauté until golden. Add the flax meal and cook. Add the broth and milk. Add the carrots and broccoli. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook about 20 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Add in the catfish, when it has heated through stir in the shredded cheese. When the cheese has melted, serve.
