Tomato, Zucchini & Fresh Corn Soup


2 zucchini, trimmed, halved and sliced

3 Tbs. olive oil

Salt and freshly ground pepper

1 yellow onion, chopped

5 cloves garlic, minced

4 plum tomatoes, chopped

4 cups (32 fl. oz./1 l.) vegetable or chicken broth

1 cup (6 oz./180 g.) corn kernels (from about 2 ears)

1/3 cup (1/2 oz./15 g.) chopped basil


Preheat the oven to 400ºF (200ºC). Toss the zucchini with 1 tablespoon of the oil and season with salt and pepper. Spread on a baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes. Set aside.


In a large, heavy pot, warm the remaining 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, stir to combine, and cook for 3 minutes. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.


Puree half of the soup in a blender. Return to the pot and season with salt and pepper. Return the soup to a boil, add the corn and cook for 5 minutes. Add the zucchini and stir in the basil. Serve. Serves 4-6.

    I saw this recipe and have every ingredient in my house from a variety of gardens so the soup will almost be 100% home grown organic. I am working on it right now and hope it turns out as good as it looks.

    This soup was delicious and easy to make! My husband and I ate the entire pot in one evening with a pan of cornbread. We’ll definitely add this to our go-to recipes.

    I have a question about the Tomato-zucchini -fresh-corn-soup.

    Cannot wait to make it but would like to make a big pot of it. Can you Can it or Freeze it for later use or will it get to watery?

    Look forward to an answer. Thanks

      Hi Laura, yes, you can freeze this soup — we haven’t tested it, but it should work. The texture of the vegetables may change somewhat after reheating. Please let us know how it goes!
