Nutritious veggies! Zucchini, parsley, corn, seasoned with fresh basil and a grand finale of cubed cheese.

What you'll need

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 med zucchini, diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cup homemade vegetable broth, or canned reduced-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup frozen whole-kernel corn or 1 cup canned corn, drained
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, including juice (16-ounce)
  • 1 tbsp. snipped fresh basil leaves, or 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 can fat-free evaporated milk (12 ounce)
  • 1 cup reduced-fat cubed American or light processed cheese


  • Step 1
    Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan. Add the zucchini, onion, and parsley. Cook for about six minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Step 2
    Add the flour and stir until blended. Add the broth, lemon juice, and pepper. Stir while heating to a boil.
  • Step 3
