I didn't really want to eat anything heavy for dinner after having a late lunch, so soup was the answer.
I had some yellow summer squash and zucchini in the fridge, a quick chop, cook and blend and I was in soup heaven.
This soup can be made with just about any veggie or veggies of your liking, and if you like a more chunky soup, blend less and reserve some veggies to stir in before serving. Add a salad and crusty bread and you really have a satisfying meal. For you meat eaters, add chopped chicken.
