This soup is very refreshing, especially if you can get your hands on some really fresh, sweet corn on the cob! Unfortunately, I had to use frozen corn but even with that it was soooo good.
2 cups fresh corn, organic
2 1/2 cups young Thai coconut water, no meat
1/2 tsp fresh thyme, finely chopped
1 small carrot, diced
2 cloves garlic, finely grated
1 stalk celery, chopped
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
Salt to taste
6 cherry tomatoes, quartered
2 Tbsp Italian parsley, chopped
Fresh black pepper
1/3 cup sweet corn kernels
Blend all the ingredients, except the corn, until semi-smooth.
Add the corn to the blender and pulse for 5 seconds. **If you can’t get fresh organic corn, I would use organic frozen corn.
Cover and set aside at room temperature to mature for 10 – 20 minutes.
Pour the sweet corn soup into 2 soup bowls.
Add the corn kernels on top and give a gentle stir, making sure that there are still some on top.
Garnish with cherry tomatoes and Italian Parsley, however you like.
Allow the soup to warm to room temperature and enjoy.
Place the serving bowl in hot water, allowing it to heat up before adding the soup. This will help take a little extra chill off of the soup and make it cozy warm to hold in your hands.
Pour a serving size of soup in a mason jar, place lid on top and tighten… immerse the jar in hot water till it warms the soup to your liking.
Pour into a small sauce pan and heat on the stove. Use your finger tip as the temperature gauge, it shouldn’t get to hot for your finger. You can also use a thermometer gauge if this concerns you.
Dehydrator – if you have a “box” shaped dehydrator such as the Excalibur, pour the soup into a wide mouth baking dish and turn the heat to 145 (F) degrees. Warm for 30-60 minutes. You can also place the temperature at 115 degrees and heat for 3-4 hours. You will need to gauge this. The more soup that exposed to the air, the quicker it will warm.
