Fresh Tomato Zucchini Soup

This recipe, slightly altered from this version, came to me via an email from the Marshfield Farmers' Market. I made it with freshly-picked produce, and it was exquisite.

2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium zucchini, cubed
1 clove garlic, minced
8 large tomatoes, cored
1 small onion, diced
1 tablespoon minced hot pepper of your choice (optional)
2 cups vegetable broth
fresh herbs of your choice, chopped (I use basil)
salt & pepper to taste

Heat oil in large skillet. Saute zucchini, onion and garlic. Set aside.

Puree tomatoes in food processor or blender.

In large pot mix puree, peppers and broth. Bring to boil.

Add herbs, zucchini and garlic. Turn heat to low and simmer for 45 minutes.

Add salt & pepper to taste.
