- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 8 U ears corn, cut off the cob
- 2 U stalks celery, chopped
- 2 U carrots, chopped
- 1 U onion, chopped
- 3 U garlic cloves, minced
- 2 cups vegetable broth (plus more to thin if needed)
- 1 U bay leaf
- 1 1/2 cup skim milk
- 1/2 cup half and half
- Salt and pepper to taste
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.
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.
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.
