Corn Soup – simple and delicious!

Jump to Recipe

Soups are so much fun to make. You can literally clear out your fridge and make something simple and delicious. It is also super easy to get a ton of flavor in under 30 minutes like this really easy to make Corn Soup. I know most people save soups for the colder months – but I like soup all year round. There is just something about a homemade soup that makes me feel comfy and cozy.

Corn Soup

The secret to making this soup creamy but still have chunks of corn is the all-magical immersion blender! By blitzing roughly half of the soup into a creamy consistency and then adding it back you get the best of both worlds – creaminess and bite. If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can totally use a blender – just be sure you don’t put a full lid on the hot liquid when you blitz it – it an make a hot mess in your kitchen! The yummy flavors of the leeks and scallions add a depth of flavor that you are going to love so much. And then there is the miso! Miso gives off this silky sweet flavor that highlights the sweetness of the corn and the dryness of the white wine.

Corn Soup Prep

The garnish on this soup is also important – not just for looks. The thinly sliced radishes not only add a beautiful color to the soup, but it gives it a fresh, crispness as well as a touch of the peppery flavors radishes are known for.

This simple soup would go beautifully with my Bourbon Apricot Chicken (get the recipe here!) – yes it’s as good as it sounds! You could also have it on it’s own or serve it with a hearty green salad for a little Soup, Salad and Breadsticks combo!

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
