    Curried Corn Bisque

    Frozen vegetables are perfect for making soups and we particularly like the fresh flavor of frozen corn. This thick, satisfying soup gets a spicy kick from curry powder and hot sauce, but it's still on the mild side - add more hot sauce to turn the heat up as much as you like. Serve with a squeeze of lime or a dollop of plain yogurt and chopped scallions.


    • 2 teaspoons canola oil
    • 1 cup fresh or frozen chopped onions
    • 1 tablespoon curry powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce, or to taste
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    • 2 16-ounce packages frozen corn, or 3 10-ounce boxes
    • 2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
    • 2 cups water
    • 1 cup “lite” coconut milk, (see Ingredient note)


    Step 1
    Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 3 minutes. Add curry powder, hot sauce, salt and pepper and stir to coat the onions. Stir in corn, broth and water; increase the heat to high and bring the mixture to a boil. Remove from the heat and puree in a blender or food processor (in batches, if necessary) into a homogeneous mixture that still has some texture. Pour the soup into a clean pot, add coconut milk and heat through. Serve hot or cold. Variation Make Curried Sweet Pea Bisque by substituting frozen peas for the corn.


    Ingredient Note: Look for reduced-fat coconut milk (labeled "lite") in the Asian section of your market.
