This Chilled Sweet Corn and Celery Soup is the ultimate warm weather dinner that’s as easy to make as it is delicious! The simplicity of this soup shines through as all the ingredients go into the blender and then it’s done. No cooking, no simmering. Nothing.
However, like most soups, it does taste even better the next day when all the ingredients have had time to make friends and come together.
The trick here is using really fresh organic and in season ingredients. Though, I do realize that fresh corn can escape us within a blink of an eye, feel free to shop the freezer section to find some organic corn.
Also, make sure to use ripe avocado. It can make or break this recipe. Unripe avocados will leave a lingering bitterness and that isn’t always so pleasant.
Here’s a little trick about salt. The salt is what’s going to do the “cooking” part of this soup. It encourages the vegetables to release all their juices so they get even sweeter and tastier as it helps to break down the cellular walls.
Serve with a refreshing green leaf salad that compliments this soup by adding a few sprinkles of corn kernels, halved cherry tomatoes, basil, and minced jalapeno (if you like heat).
As I sat down to enjoy a bowl of this soup, I was transported in time, back to when I was around 8 years old. My uncle Billy, whom I idolized growing up had a friend who lived across from my grandparents. But there wasn’t a road to separate the two boys, it was a corn field. One that haunted movies are filmed in. hehe
Every once in a while when the two boys decided to get together, I would get to tag along. They would meet each other half way in the corn field. My uncle would lift me up his shoulders and we would set out fight our way through the jungle of corn… rows and rows and rows of corn. To find one another, they would whistle to act as a beckon. By the end of our excursion, I would be beat up from the rough leaves of the corn stalks and covered in mosquito bites… but I didn’t care… I GOT to be with Uncle Billy. (flutters eyelashes). I am about as fond of the taste of this soup as I am of those wonderful memories.
Do take note, that this soup can also be enjoyed warmed up if this recipe finds you on a chillier day. I shared some ideas on how to warm the soup but keep it raw down below. I hope you enjoy this recipe. Many blessings, amie sue
