Cream of Broccorn soup

What is broccorn, you ask? Why it's non other than broccoli and corn. I felt soup was in order for an easy meal. It was hot that day, too. But if I want soup, I'm going to have soup, gosh darn it! Even though the weather may say otherwise. I'm meditating on fall right now. Chanting a mantra and spreading the fall vibe.

The last time I had such a soup was at Whole Foods from their prepared foods area. It was alright and I thought to myself maybe I can do better. This is a really easy and simple to make. Just remember to blow on it, if it's super hot. I got a little excited and I burnt my tongue upon first spoonful. Oh, how I've put my tastebuds through so much and yet, they've managed to recover every single time. But this soup is worth a slightly numbed tongue.

You may use chicken broth, if you'd prefer. I used vegetable broth for this soup. Add a dollop of sour cream and some shredded cheese with some crackers or bread on the side. Yum yum!

Serves 2-3

Cream of Broccorn Soup

1 head of broccoli - fresh or 1 small frozen pack
2 c corn kernels - fresh, canned or frozen
1 12 oz can vegetable broth
1 large garlic clove
1/2 medium onion - chopped
3/4 c evaporated milk

sour cream - optionals
shredded cheese - optional

Finely chop the broccoli into piece.

Saute the garlic and onion in a tiny drizzle of olive oil until the onions are translucent. Add in the vegetable stock, then the broccoli. Cover and bring the broth to a simmer on a medium heat. This will cook the broccoli.

Stir in the evaporated milk.

Using a blender, food processor or emersion blender and puree the broccoli.

Add in the corn and let it simmer for 5 more minutes on medium to low heat.

If you don't have a blender, food processor, or emersion blender, you can leave it as a chunky soup.

Add a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle some cheese. Serve warm.

I think your soup is a wonderful idea and it looks delicious. It's been very warm here in Virginia too. It's supposed to cool down finally tomorrow, hopefully! (Love your swordfish too!).

It's been getting cold in Turkey these days, so soup is a perfect idea for me. And broccoli soup is one of my favorite. I love to see those small green pieces in the soup. But I've never tried it with corn.So I must give this broccorn soup a try. Thanks.
