13 Sep Summer Farm Chowder
Cool summer evenings call for a deliciously fresh soup. This one is bursting with herbs and vegetables AND kids even like it! For an extra immune boost, use chicken bone broth, which is full of gut healing minerals. This soup is finished off with coconut milk, but if you do not like that, substitute dairy milk.
Summer Farm Chowder
1-2 Tbs. olive oil or ghee
2 medium zucchini, chopped
1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
2 poblano peppers, seeded and chopped
Large pinch of sea salt
3 Tbs. fresh herbs (such as dill, parsley, basil, thyme), chopped
4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 cups plum tomatoes, diced

In a large soup pot, heat olive oil or ghee on medium heat. Add zucchini, onion, peppers and salt. Sauté until tender but not mushy, about 5-10 min. Add fresh herbs and sauté one more minute until herbs are aromatic. Add broth, lemon juice and tomatoes. Bring to a boil and simmer another 10 mins. Add coconut milk and corn. Heat through for another 5 minutes. Ladle into your favorite soup bowl and top with some more fresh herbs. ENJOY!
