1 can (35 oz) no-salt-added Italian whole peeled tomatoes with basil, diced into small chunks
2 C zucchini, rinsed, quartered, and sliced
1 C yellow onion, diced
1 Tbsp.  Olive oil

Place frozen edamame in a deep saucepan with just enough water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cover.  Cook for 5 minutes. Drain.  Set aside.
While soybeans cook, chop tomatoes, zucchini, and onion.
In a large nonstick sauté pan, cook onion in olive oil over medium heat until soft, about 5 minutes.

Add garlic. Cook and stir for 1 minute.
Stir in the drained edamame, tomatoes,               zucchini, corn, and salt.
Cover. Simmer until zucchini is tender, about 15 minutes.
Stir in lemon juice and oregano.
Serve immediately.
