Saute onion, zucchini, and butter with seasonings until just tender. Stir in flour, salt and pepper. Stir in water, boullion cubes, and lemon juice. Mix well, bring to a boil for 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, milk, and corn. Bring to a boil, then cover and let simmer 5 min. or until corn is tender. Add cheese.
