Corn and Squash Soup

Corn Soup 2.jpg

Makes 6-8 servings.

The combination of summer corn and summer yellow squash makes for a wonderful, nutritious and golden colored soup.

I serve it warm or at room temperature.


  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion, coarsely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
  • 4 ears corn plus 1 for garnish
  • 4 medium yellow squash, about 1½ pounds
  • 3 cups vegetable broth.
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice, approx
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan. Add the onion, garlic and sauté for a minute.
  2. Shuck the corn kernels, setting aside one of the ears for garnish.
  3. Rinse the squash and slice.
  4. Add the corn, zucchini and 2¼ cups of the broth to the saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Lower the heat and cook, covered, for about 15 minutes or until tender.
  5. Puree the soup, in two batches, in a Vitamix until smooth and silky.
  6. Adjust the consistency with the reserved broth. Season with lime juice, salt and pepper.
