Creamy Corn and Vegetable Soup

This is a simple soup made with veggies and corn and the interesting thing is it is creamy without using even a drop of cream.It uses pureed corn and milk to obtain a creamy texture.I am always on the lookout of good,yet different soups and this one from Ellie Kreiger is comforting.Since I was also on the lookout of Yellow dishes ;),this was as perfect with a few changes.

Ingredients:

Corn kernels: 1 +1 cup
Milk: 1 cup

Onion:1 big
Carrot:1 medium
Bell Pepper:1 medium green/red as per taste
Zucchini: 1 small

Veg Broth:2 cups+

Salt
Pepper

Preparation:

Puree in a blender/processor 1 cup corn and milk to obtain a thick yellow smooth puree.Keep aside.Finely chop onions and chop the rest of the veggies into bite sized pieces.

Heat oil in a large pan/soup pot.Add onions,bell pepper (I used red),carrot, zucchini and little salt and saute till they start to cook.Add remaining 1 cup of corn and broth(homemade or store bought) and bring to boil.Let it simmer till the veggies are completely cooked for 5-10 minutes.Add the pureed corn and milk mixture and let it heat through.Adjust salt and pepper.Serve with your choice of garnish or accompaniments or as such.


I served it as such and it is very filling soup.Only thing is corn though thickens the soup and makes it more creamy,it can also make it a bit sweeter,so always add more pepper or add other spices like chilli powder or oregano or whatever you like.I did add extra pepper in my bowl though and no other spices.The above estimate gives 3 big bowls of soup.A warm bowl is going to FIC:Yellow hosted by SunshineMom.The soup is hearty though picture in these days may not look appealing.I know I am boring you with many soup recipes -2 more in the pipeline,bear with me.Next post will be very interesting for sure.

UPDATE:

Milk being a major ingredient in this soup,a warm bowl is on its way to Preety for Cooking for Kids:Milk an event started by Sharmi of Neivedhyam .
