Ingredients:

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 onion, small diced
6 cups low-sodium fat free chicken broth
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
2 large zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced thinly on the diagonal
8 ounces green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch sections
1 small whole-grain baguette or ½ large, cut into ¾-inch cubes
sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

Place a large saucepan over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of oil followed by the onion and cook until tender. Pour in the broth, canned tomatoes, salt, and pepper and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the veggies and return to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until the veggies are tender, about 10 minutes. While the soup is simmering, make the croutons.

Place the bread cubes on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil then season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine, then toast the bread until golden and crispy, about 6 minutes. Ladle the soup into bowls, garnish with croutons, and serve.
