3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 cups fresh corn kernels, cut from 3 ears

1 (12-ounce) bag frozen shelled edamame
2 cups low sodium chicken broth

Directions

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the corn and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to brown, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer corn to a bowl and reserve.

Add the bell peppers and cook 2 minutes. Stir in the zucchini and cook 30 seconds. Add the edamame and cook 30 seconds, stirring. Pour in the broth, bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, until edamame is tender, 10-12 minutes. Add the corn, cook 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in the parsley, salt, and pepper.
