Recipe by Barb 3663

Quick, easy and good for you. I started with Dr. Dean Ornish's Creamy Corn Soup, and simpled it up a bit.

Very good recipe. I used a bit more onion and added ~5 cloves of garlic and a decent amount of cumin, rather than cayenne. I used a bag (12 oz?) of frozen corn rather than canned, and this worked fine. With black beans added, this is a pretty complete meal in one pot. I pureed everything (including the black beans) because I needed liquid meals after oral surgery. This was simple enough to make after that procedure, and really quite tasty. I am looking forward to having it again without needing to liquefy everything. Thanks!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan, sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, sautee the onion until translucent. Add one can of drained corn and the milk to the onion. Bring very slowly to just below a boil, stirring contantly. Cover, adjust heat to maintain a simmer and cook until corn is tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Cool slightly, then puree in a blender or food processor until smooth. Or use a stick blender right in the pot. Return to heat. Stir in remaining corn, chiles, and pimiento. Reheat gently; season to taste with salt and pepper. Add a pinch of cayenne pepper if you like more heat.
  3. Additions: Add cooked, diced potatoes for corn chowder.
  4. Add a can of rinsed and drained black beans for a bean and corn soup.
