Spicy Vegan Cream of Corn soup! A vegan cream of corn soup that’s nourishing, flavorful, and gluten free! So easy to make. Just roast then toss in a blender. Perfect vegetarian dish for anytime of year. Serve warm or chilled. Ready in 35 minutes and super tasty!
Yes I’m posting a soup recipe the day after I posted a crock pot recipe while complaining about the heat. Don’t judge my sporadicism. Is that a word? LOL! But I promise this blender vegan spice cream of corn soup recipe is really good hot (or chilled). And to be honest, I really wanted to try my hand at creating (and enjoying) a vegan style roasted cream of corn soup.
We rarely eat corn and I’ve heard that roasting sweet corn that is in season is actually easier to digest (more on that below). So you can imagine roasted corn in soup form would be even easier on the stomach, right? Right you are! Oh and bonus points that’s it’s another blender recipe. SUPER EASY!
I also feel like this is a kind of a comfort food to meets end of summer. Speaking of comfort. Can you tell that all my recipes this week have been about comfort food made gluten-free, of course, and a little bit healthier?
You see, I’ve got five days until until my colon surgery. Trust me, I won’t be having these comfort foods the day before. LOL! Oh so fun! So I guess I was trying to get in all the good stuff before I have to drink broth and Jell-O for a few days. Come on come now, you know you would do that too! When someone says you can’t eat all your favorite foods for a period of time, all you want to do eat them. Eat all the ice cream, drink all the wine, double up on tacos. And make 12 more apple pie peanut butter cakes. Just kidding, I only made one more peanut butter mug cake.
That being said, I think there’s a way to find comfort in just about any food you make. It’s all about the love. Which is how I came up with this vegan cream corn recipe. A little TLC and Comfort food for the Cotters! My husband loves a good creamy chowder, spicy food, and good old fashioned cream of corn casserole (yes we totally Americanized him). Me? I love creamy vegan soups or chilled gazpacho style soups. I dunno, it’s my thing. But either way, I’m all about making a veggie soup with extra creamy and full of flavor. Plus soups are so easy to make ahead and freeze. They are my meal prep jam!
Back to my main point here, this vegan spicy cream of corn soup was all about creating comfort and nourishment. So I decided we needed to give corn another chance by first roasting sweet corn then blending it with coconut milk and spices! Not only is this blender soup recipe so easy to make, but it’s super tasty and “supposedly” it’s for better digestion.
How is this possible?
Well folks, eating non GMO seasonal corn that’s cooked contains soluble fiber. This soluble fiber reaches the lower part of our large intestines where they are absorbed by intestinal bacteria and then turned into short chain fatty acids. This is creates a support system for good bacteria. So basically FEEDs that gut flora. Better gut flora means a healthy immune system and better digestion! Plus eating corn with a healthy fat (such as coconut milk) can help you absorb more of it’s fat soluble antioxidants, (like vitamin A). You can thank Dr. Axe for that tip. I love that guy, he’s brilliant! Plus he’s a cutie. Just sayin…
Anyways…. I’m happy to report that cream of corn soup will be a new healthy comfort food soup we will be adding to our menu! And hopefully you can enjoy too!
