Thai Coconut Zucchini and Corn Soup
It is common to have loads of zucchini and Summer squash on hand in the Summer, and that is always a good thing! I love making the classics like zucchini bread and zucchini bakes, but they can be a wonderful addition to soups too as a healthy add in. The soup I am sharing with you today is quick and easy to make and so delicious. It contains zucchini too! It is a Thai red curry soup that is always a hit when I make it! I also add in some sweet corn because I love it with coconut milk which is the base for this, and some chickpeas for protein. This soup is light and Summery and it won’t leave you feeling weighed down.

In a large stockpot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the leek, and sautee until starting to soften, about 5 minutes. Add all other remaining ingredients, and bring to a boil. Lower to a simmer, and cook for about 15 minutes, or until the squash is tender. Add the cornstarch mixture, and cook until just thickened, about 1 minute more. Remove from heat and add lime juice and chickpeas. Serve!
