Cream of Corn Soup

Corn Soup Recipe

This is a luscious and lovely cream of corn soup.

It is good any time of the year, but a particular treat when sweet corn is fresh and at it’s prime.


Either way is an easy soup recipe, with few ingredients and ready for the table in less than 30 minutes.

You can make this tasty vegetarian soup any time of the year though because it tastes amazing made of canned cream style corn as well.

With vegetable soups like this, it’s easy to put a fresh homemade soup on the table that even kids will love.

If you or the kids really don’t like onions, simply leave them out. The onions really up the flavor profile though.

As well, the parsley and chives as garnishes are optional, but do add flavor and nutrition.
