35-Minute Summer Veggie Chicken Soup

As our summer crops are being harvested in the garden, we have fresh veggie for dinner everyday. This delicious soup is perfect to serve with your summer meals. The vegetables are cooked until just tender to retain their fresh flavor and texture. Although bitter melon tastes a little bitter, it pairs well with the sweet summer corns. If your garden produces different types of vegetables, not a problem. Use whatever vegetables you have. That’s what a garden is for.
