Zucchini Soup

 Next to Brandy's Butternut Squash Soup, this is probably my favorite 'squash soup'.
It can be made for pennies, using garden vegetables and homemade broth.

Zucchini Soup
-2 quarts homemade chicken broth
-2 large zucchini squash (11-12 inches long)
-3 green onions
-1 cup cut corn
-3T butter or olive oil
-salt and pepper

Slice the whites of the green onions and the squash. Saute in the butter/oil until tender. 
Add chicken broth and blend with a hand mixer or stick blender until smooth.
Add cut corn and heat to a low simmer.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Cook 10 to 15 additional minutes.

Garnish with heavy cream and sliced green onion tops. (opt)
Served here with sliced sourdough bread.
