The other day I was browsing the internet for recipes and I found this Grilled Corn on the Cob with Lime Butter recipe from Tyler Florence. It sounded like it would be delicious but I find difficult to eat corn on my soft food diet. So I made up this Grilled Corn with Lime Butter Soup! 

Corn on the cob doesn’t blend well unless it’s puréed so this gave me an idea. What if I made a soup version of the recipe? Unfortunately I didn’t have all of the ingredients of the the original recipe’s spice blend so I had to settle for just using cayenne pepper. The final product turned out really well. Blending everything in the Vitamix really well produced a smooth and  creamy corn soup with a nice kick from the lime and cayenne pepper. 

Ingredients 

  • 3 cobs of fresh corn
  • 1 tsp unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 tsp olive oil 
  • 5 cups, chicken stock
  • 1 lime, zest finely grated
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/4 bunch fresh chervil, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup parmesan, finely grated
  • 2 tbsp, cayenne pepper

Directions 

  1. Remove the husk from the corn and boil the corn for 10 minutes.
  2. Remove the corn from the pot and let it cool. 
  3. Grill the corn until it is caramelized.
  4. Cut the corn off of the cob. 
  5. In a pan, sauté onion in butter and olive oil until clear.
  6.  Add corn and chicken stock to the pan and let it simmer for 5 minutes. 
  7. Pour corn and chicken stock into Vitamix blender.
  8. Add the chopped chervil, lime zest and blend until everything is smooth. 
  9. Pour soup into bowls. 
  10. Top with grated parmesan cheese and cayenne pepper. 
  11. Enjoy! 

Notes

  • You can add more or less chicken stock to customize the thickness to your liking. 
  • If you don’t have chervil, you can substitute with fresh parsley. 
  • You can customize the spiciness by adding more or less cayenne pepper.
