Our markets are flooded with fresh produce from early spring to late fall. Sometimes, it’s an overwhelming process to find quick and easy recipes that take advantage of nature’s bounty. One of my favorite ways in which to use this produce abundance, is fresh soup.

Small Batch Spicy Corn Soup | Wolf Gourmet

This small batch skillet soup isn’t an all-day, laborious process. It doesn’t require an oven or a lengthy simmer, which is wonderful in the hot summer months. This spicy corn soup goes from skillet to blender to your table in under ten minutes.

Fresh sweet corn is one of my favorite ingredients to use in a summer soup. It has a natural silkiness to it that, when blended, yields a smooth and creamy texture.

Fresh corn is simmered with sweet bell peppers, onions, some garlic and jalapeño pepper. Then, it’s pureed with the Wolf Gourmet blender. It should be enjoyed with some crusty bread and a fresh herbaceous summer salad. This seasonal soup is equally wonderful served hot out of the blender or chilled.
