Late Summer Minestrone

Submitted by: PIGLET63


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 medium onion, chopped
    2 carrots, cut into 1/2-inch dice
    2 zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch dice
    1 cup fresh corn (about 2 ears)
    1 cup fresh green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1 cup cored, chopped tomato (canned is fine; include juice)
    1/2 cup chopped basil leaves, plus more for serving

Directions

Put 3 tablespoons water in a large, deep saucepan or casserole over medium-high heat. When hot, add onion, carrots, and zucchini. Cook, stirring, until onion softens and vegetables begin to caramelize, 10 minutes or so.

Add corn and beans; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, for a minute or 2, then add 6 cups water and tomato; bring to a boil, then adjust heat so mixture bubbles gently. Cook, stirring every now and then, until vegetables are fairly soft and tomatoes have broken up, about 15 minutes.

Add 1/2 cup basil and adjust heat once again so mixture simmers. Cook until all vegetables are very tender, 5 to 15 minutes longer. Taste and adjust seasoning.
