Roasted Corn and Pepper Soup

Submitted by: CHEF_MEG
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

    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'm making it now, will let you know how it turns out. It sure looks good and I love the idea about using leftovers for a sauce. DONE..

  • I thought this was great as I modified it. I was really surprised the recipe didn't call for roasting the tomatoes since you already had to roast the peppers and corn. The roasted tomatoes added some great flavor. I used fresh basil instead of thyme. And I sprinkled the roasted corn on top. YUM! - 8/30/12

  • I made this with a few changes: I pureed the tomatoes and sauteed onions, put in pot with chicken broth. I then added the corn, diced green peppers, and spices. It seemed a little sparse and bland, so I diced up some zucchini and added a bay leaf and a few shakes of creole seasoning...perfect! - 8/12/12

    This sounds like a really wonderful soup that allows for many variations - maybe add some beans and hold back some of the pureed vegies for texture. Toasting the cumin might be nice, too, and poblanos for kick. Probably good cold! Trader Joe's has frozen roasted corn! - 7/23/10
