Recipe

My hearts breaks when corn season begins to end, and with the end of September looming, I am trying to eat as much fresh corn as possible. This simple soup recipe is just that loads of fresh corn blended with a little milk and cream. If you really love corn, this soup does the trick. I served mine with some crispy bacon and toasted pumpkin seeds.

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil over low-medium heat in a large soup pot. Once it is warm, add the carrots, celery, onion, and garlic. Cook for 6-8 minutes or until vegetables begin to soften. Add 1/2 of the corn, the bay leaf, and the vegetable broth to the mixture. Let cook for an additional 7-10 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked through.
  2. Remove the bay leaf and add all the content of the soup to a blender. Blend until completely smooth. If you want a very smooth texture, push through a sieve after blending.
  3. Return the corn puree to the soup pot and add the milk, cream, and fresh corn. Let cook for 7-10 minutes over low heat or until the corn softens to your liking. I like mine a little crispy. Add salt and pepper and stir in any additional vegetable broth until you get the consistency you like. Enjoy.
