Fresh Corn Soup

Sweet, fresh summer corn is tender even when it's raw, so it purées nicely for this soup.


Ingredients

  • 6 cups fresh corn kernels , (from 6 to 7 large cobs), divided
  • 2 cups sodium-free chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped shallot
  • pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped red sweet pepper
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp thyme leaves
  • corn chips , optional

Instructions

  • Working in batches, purée 5 cups corn kernels with chicken stock and shallot until very smooth. Pour soup through a strainer, pressing down on solids to extract any liquid (if you have a high-powered blender, you can skip this step). Season with salt.
  • Combine remaining 1 cup corn with red pepper, olive oil and thyme to make topping. Spoon onto servings of soup, garnishing each bowl with a corn chip, if desired.
