Grilled Garden Soup



2 large zucchinis or yellow squash sliced thin 6 large tomatoes cut into 4 slices
2 tablespoons minced garlic
½ cup chopped onion
olive oil
2 teaspoons salt
2 cups chicken broth
¼ cup grated parmesan
black pepper

Preheat an indoor (or outdoor) grill. Brush zucchini/squash and tomato slices with olive oil and grill until tender and grill marks appear. Remove from grill and place in blender. In medium skillet, sauté garlic and onion in 1 tablespoon olive oil until translucent. Remove from skillet and add to blender. Add salt and puree until smooth; set aside in a large pot. Add chicken broth to the pot until desired consistency is reached. Warm and serve. Garnish with grated parmesan and cracked black pepper.
Yield: 6 servings

From The Other Half,
This is actually my recipe, so eat at your own risk! It is our families favorite in the early fall, when we can get most of these ingredients from our garden. Oh, and this is pretty healthy, though it doesn’t taste it.
