Roasted Corn and Pepper Soup

Introduction

This is a great recipe when the garden is overflowing. This is a great recipe when the garden is overflowing.
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    4 ears yellow corn, shucked
    3 bell peppers, (red, orange or yellow), or
    1 jar roasted peppers packed in water
    5 Roma tomatoes, peeled, de-seeded and chopped, or 1 1/2 cups diced tomatoes, drained
    1 T olive oil
    1 large white or yellow onion, finely diced
    pinch red pepper
    1/4 t cumin, ground
    1/2 t dried thyme
    1/4 t black pepper
    16 oz vegetable broth, low sodium
    1 T chives, chopped (optional)

Tips

Any leftover soup can be used as a sauce to bake boneless chicken breasts. Garnish with parsley and sour cream, if desired.


Directions

Roast the corn and peppers over a grill set to medium heat or in a 400 degree oven until the kernels just start to brown and the skin of the peppers starts to char. Place the peppers in a paper bag or in a bowl covered with a kitchen towel.

Allow the peppers to steam and the corn to cool for 10 minutes.

Using a knife and slicing away from you, remove the kernels from the cob. Remove the core and charred skin from the peppers and chop the flesh.

Heat a large stock pot or saucepan over medium heat. Add the oil and, once hot, add the onions. Cook the onions for 3-4 minutes. Add the remaining vegetables and spices. Cook for 2-3 minutes.

Slowly add the stock and simmer for 20 minutes.
Puree the soup with an immersion blender or in food processor.

Make eight one-cup servings.

    Yummy! I saved a cup of the veggie mixure and added after pureeing the rest to add texture. - 10/10/09

    I "cheated" and used a bag of frozen corn which I put under the broiler to get some charred flavor. I didn't have time to roast the peppers, so I cooked them in the olive oil with the onions. I also used cilantro instead of chives as a garnish...It would be really good with chicken and/or avocado. - 7/24/10

    Can you eat Paprika? You could substitute that spice for the peppers and add some zuchini for added texture. - 10/6/09

    I thought it was just ok. Also, maybe I had small ears of corn but it definitely did not make 8 one-cup servings! Maybe 5, but even that would be a stretch. I wasn't amazed, but it wasn't bad. It might be better as a sauce than as a soup. - 11/10/09

    I love this soup, peppers, corn and tomatoes. Only my son is a vegitarian so I used vegetable broth instead of chicken and it came out great. - 7/22/10

    Wow - yum! I also added a couple spicy peppers for a kick and I got it! And corn on the cob is not in season now, so I used frozen corn from my parents' garden and put it under the broiler with the peppers. It worked well. - 10/21/12
