Ingredients for Cream of Corn Soup
- Corn – I used cream style corn. You can find this in grocery, and I would recommend using the cream style rather than the whole pieces because cream style makes the soup creamier.
- Broth – I used homemade vegetable broth, you can use chicken or water. Broth adds a deeper flavor as compare to using water
- Milk – if you want to keep it vegan, you can skip this and Use more broth or water instead
- Butter – Salted and unsalted works fine simply adjust the salt measurement in the recipe. If you want to make it vegan, simply replace it with vegan margarine or butter, or just use any flavorless oil
- Onion – for milder taste, use either white or yellow onion. Do not use red onion as it has a very strong taste.
- Salt and Pepper – add gradually to adjust to your preference.
How to Make Cream of Corn Soup?
Start by sautéing the onion in butter until translucent. Add flour and mix to combine. The flour will serve as thickener for the soup. Some recipe do not use onion, but I find it gives a nice taste to the soup. After this, simply add cream of corn, broth, milk, salt and pepper. Summer for 5 minutes while stirring from time to time. The consistency will get thicker. At this point, if you like a chunky soup with bits and pieces of corn, you can stop at this stage. If you want it creamy, transfer it in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. You can also use an immersion blender if you have one. I like to return it back to the pan to summer addition al 1 minute, its also a good chance to season it if needed. That’s about it. Serve with with croutons on top of serve it as is.
Can I Make Cream of Corn Soup Vegan?
Yes you can. Simply replace regular milk with vegan milk that has a neutral taste. Almond or Soy milk will work, coconut milk could probably have some minor change in taste.
Can I Use Fresh Corn to Make Cream of Corn Soup?
Technically you can, but it will not be as creamy. The cream liquid in cream of corn adds a lot of creaminess and smooth texture to the soup. If you are ok with that, then feel free to use cooked fresh corn. Shred the corn before using.
