Fresh Corn and Capsicum Soup

Fresh Corn and Capsicum Soup

I was never a soup person, I use to have soup only in restaurants and limit myself with tomato soup and if I venture out to any new soup most of the time my experience would not be so good. Now a days I try to make different variety of soups at home just to keep myself interested in it.  I am also showing how easy it to make corn kernels off the cob.
Fresh Corn and Roasted Capsicum Soup Recipe
I had fresh corn to use and I wanted to do something other than usual corn on the cob which anyway I did for the another corn. I found this recipe at SK website and changed almost fully to do it my way, the result yummy delicious and filling soup. Fresh sweet corn and roasted capsicum adds a wonderful flavour and texture to the soup and to my surprise even DH liked it which is very unusual. So as I always say if you looking for something different, simple and elegant then this is for you Smile

5. Let it get cool and then  transfer everything to a mixer or blender.  I don’t add more water while blending just to make sure my mixer doesn’t overflow. If you wish you can add more water or stock.

~ You can add little corn flour mixed in water to thicken the soup but I don’t find it necessary to do that as the soup by itself thick and creamy.
