Sometimes the weather, time or our moods dictate the food that is prepared in our kitchen. The fall weather is so perfect for a warm cup of soup. This is my go to soup especially when I am out of fresh veggies in my fridge or when I have very little time and have a lot of hungry stomachs to feed. A bag of frozen corn can feed a family of four easily. A very healthy, simple soup that is the most popular among all the kids in my family. I make it so often and sometimes serve it for dinner along with some instant garlic bread. I promise you that once you have tasted this one you would not buy the corn soup at any store. A bag of frozen organic yellow corn from Trader Joe's is all that I used for this recipe. So, next time you are in a mood for some hot soup, give this one a try and you will not be disappointed.
Pressure pan/ Heavy Bottom Pot
Measuring Cups and Spoons
Blender ( Vitamix works the best, but a normal blender will work too)
Frozen Corn/ Fresh Corn - 16 oz
Water/ Vegetable Broth - 3 cups
Milk ( Regular/Lactaid/Rice/ Cream)- 2 cups
Note: In case of allergies rice milk works fine. If you want to make it rich add some cream. Personally, 2% milk works fine.
Fresh Ground Black Pepper
Butter -1 tbsp
1. Add corn, water or veggie broth and salt to a pressure cooker and cook it to 3 whistles. Once the pressure releases and allow the liquid to cool. If using a stock pot, add all the ingredients and cook the corn on medium high for 10 minutes or until it is well done and allow to cool a little.
2. Transfer to a blender and make a smooth puree. If you own a vita mix just blend into a smooth puree and add it back into the pan/ pot. If using a regular blender, pass through a sieve to remove the corn husk and then add to the pan/pot.
3. Add milk, pepper and butter. Allow to come to a boil and serve hot with garlic bread.
