Very nice creamy soup. I use patty pan squash and grill it before putting it in the soup. I also use vegetable broth.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 medium shallot, chopped 2 medium summer squash, (about 1 pound)sliced, brushed with oil and grilled 3 teaspoons chopped fresh herbs, such as thyme or oregano, divided 1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth, or vegetable broth ¼ teaspoon salt 1 cup fresh corn kernels

Instructions

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add squash and 1 teaspoon herbs and cook, stirring occasionally 3 to 5 minutes. Add broth and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the squash is soft and mostly translucent, about 5 minutes more. Transfer to a blender and puree until smooth. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids.) Return the soup to the pan and stir in corn. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the corn is tender, 3 to 5 minutes more. Remove from the heat
