I was so proud of myself when I finally got a French Friday with Dorie recipe done before a Friday ... I finished my corn soup on a Tuesday and we all enjoyed it for family dinner, but .... then I never posted my photos & results. Ack!
So here we go ... the Corn Soup.
I've always loved corn soup of the Amish variety with potatoes, bell peppers, freshly diced tomatoes, and other good stuff. While I was in Salt Lake City this past summer, there was a super yummy cafe basically across the street from where we were rehearsing, performing, and recording, so we (my friends & I) stopped in several times for lunch and dinner. They had a corn soup there that I tried and kept going back to get ... it was soothing to my tummy after sitting for way too many hours and before nerve-racking concerts. The corn soup in Salt Lake City had pesto swirled into it that I totally loved. Even though I was hesitant to try a different corn soup recipe cause I already have one that I enjoy, I was hopeful that it might taste like that corn soup up in Utah.
I decided to hunt down some corn on the cob here in hot AZ. It was not easy to find, but I did it and payed too much for it. The kiddies and I made our corn soup along with some of my pesto.
I enjoyed the soup, but it more closely resembled my Amish corn soup, but without all the veggies, so I kinda missed my chunky veggies. I did decide that if make a smooth corn soup again, I'll definitely make pesto to go with it again!
