Summer Vegetable Soup & Homemade Focaccia Panini

I realize it’s the end of July and over 100 degrees outside but I just needed a bowl of soup tonight. It’s been one of those sore throat kind of days and all I have wanted was my mom’s chicken vegetable soup. Instead, I opted for all the fresh, summer veggies I could find while they’re still in season and made my own version of a classic.

Today was my second day of my second baking phase. We made french bread, focaccia (which I used for a panini tonight), and an awesome chocolate cherry sourdough.

recipe inspire from Pam at For the Love of Cooking

1 tsp olive oil
1/2 sweet yellow onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup green onion, finely sliced
corn on cob, baked and kernels removed 
1 zucchini, small diced
1 yellow squash, small diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
bunch of parsley
bunch of basil, torn
1 14 oz can of diced tomatoes with juices
6 cups of vegetable or chicken stock (I used up my homemade chicken stock)
kosher salt and cracked pepper to taste

2 breast of chicken, seared in sauté skillet

2 T mayo

1 tsp sirracha

foccacia, sliced horizontal

1 T torn basil

2 slices of extra sharp cheddar

I made this panini in the oven because I don’t have a press. Broil both sides, add cheese on one side and sirracha mayo on the other, add chicken, basil, and broil until melted.
