Red Corn Soup

August 1, 2010

Today’s lunch was so delicious that I have to post the recipe. When we first got our Champion Juicer, one of the big draws was the fact that we could make fresh corn soup. We bought the juicer in the winter, so we had to wait a while before we could actually get Jersey Fresh corn. I spent about 10 summers of my life working on a corn farm in New Jersey, so having fresh, locally grown corn is a big thing for me.

Today we decided to try a variation of the normal corn soup recipe. The normal recipe is: corn. The corn is run through the juicer, and the juice is heated and stirred constantly until it thickens. Once it becomes thick it is ready to eat. You can put some olive oil, salt, lemon juice, or whatever you want, but you really don’t need to add anything.

Today’s recipe:

Red Corn Soup

5 ears of corn (juiced)
2 Carrots (one shredded, one juiced)
1 Beet (juiced)
5 Mushrooms (sliced)
1 clove of garlic (minced)
juice of 1/2 lemon
pinch of salt
olive oil (as needed for sauteing)

Saute garlic and mushrooms in olive oil, splash with lemon juice. Leave over low heat until mushrooms are browned.

Juice the corn, carrot, beet. Combine in saucepan, add shredded carrot and a pinch of salt. Stir constantly over a low heat until it begins to boil and thicken. Once it is fairly thick, remove it from the heat, mix in the mushrooms and garlic, and stir before serving.

This is what it looked like in the end. I also made a pitcher of lemon-lime soda with freshly juiced lemon, lime, and a little bit of raw agave syrup. I added a ton of ice and a bottle of San Pellegrino and it became a refreshing accompaniment for the soup.

    Wow, that sounds simply delish! We have thought about getting a juicer. My husband loves fresh corn and corn soup. I am definitely telling him about this. Sounds like another productive day!

      Thanks Sharon. If your husband likes corn, he’ll definitely like the soup. The plain corn soup makes a good base, it is creamy and delicious. If it helps your decision, I never regret getting the juicer.
