Corn Chowder with Summer Vegetables

     This week our recipe swap  topic was summer vegetables.  I was happy with the category because I have a ton of vegetables growing out in my garden and was looking forward to using them in a new summer dish.  I received a summer corn and vegetable soup from Christine’s Kitchen Chronicles.  It sounded light and summery and was filled with summer vegetables.

      I changed the dish to make it in the crock-pot because of how hot it has been outside.  The chowder gets a lovely light yellow color that contrasts beautifully with the red, green, and white vegetables that are throughout the soup.  It has a light corn flavor with touches of garlic and herbs.  The vegetables really come together and make a nice summer soup.  It was easy to make and perfect for this time of year.

1 plum tomato, seeded and diced
1 t. salt
1 t. black pepper
2 t. fresh parsley, chopped
2 t. fresh sage, cut into ribbons (basil can be substituted)

1.  Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add in the garlic, onion, green pepper, red pepper, and zucchini.  Saute for 5 minutes then put in the crock-pot.
