Every Tuesday, we scan Food 52′s delectable menu of recipes for the healthiest picks they’ve got—bringing you seasonal, scrumptious fare that’s really good for you.

Food52 Summer squash is super high in vitamins A, C, and B6, as well as fiber, riboflavin, and potassium. Plus, this superfood soup will look super pretty when you serve it.

Tarragon Lemon Summer Squash Soup
Serves 4

1 large yellow squash
2 green onions (scallions), light green and white parts, chopped
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh tarragon leaves, chopped
1 garlic clove, finely minced
Ground black pepper, to taste
3 cups chicken broth, preferably homemade
Juice of 1/2 large lemon
1/2 cup milk or cream
Tarragon, snipped chives, shredded Parmesan cheese, and croutons, for garnish (optional)

1. In a soup pot, sauté the squash and onion in the butter and olive oil until onion is tender, about 7 to 10 minutes. Add the garlic in the last minute or so.

2. Season with black pepper to taste, add the tarragon, then pour in the chicken broth and lemon juice and stir.

3. Cover and bring to a simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes until the squash is tender all the way through.

4. Remove from heat and add the milk or cream.

5. Purée about half the soup with whatever device you have, then return to pot.

6. Serve immediately, and garnish with additional tarragon, chives, shredded Parmesan cheese, and croutons, if you like.
