  6. In the meantime, in a large saucepan, melt the butter into the oil over moderate heat.

  9. Add the ground cumin, stir, and cook for 1 minute.
  10. Add the flour, stir, and cook for 1 minute more.
  11. Season with salt and pepper and add the fresh thyme.
  12. Stir in the milk and the beer until well-combined. Bring the mixture to a boil.
  13. Once it reaches boiling, lower the heat and add the grilled, diced vegetables. Stir in the cheese.
  14. Stir constantly until completely heated through. Serve.
