This spicy vegan corn soup is made with roasted corn kernels and creamy coconut milk for an easy meal that can be made in the blender!


Units Scale
  • 3 cups corn kernels (non GMO). This can be previously frozen if you need a quick version. Reserve 2 Tablespoons cooked corn for topping.
  • 12 Tablespoon olive oil or avocado oil (divided)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (divided)
  • 15 ounces light coconut milk (from the can) or unsweetened non-dairy milk of choice. (The coconut milk from the can makes the soup creamier.)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika or sweet paprika
  • 23 garlic cloves (equivalent to 1 teaspoon minced)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh basil leaves, plus extra for garnishing
  • 2 Tablespoon chili sauce, spicy curry sauce, or hot sauce
  • optional peppercorns to top
  • optional sliced jalapeno or peppers


  1. Preheat oven to 450 Fahrenheit. While the oven is preheating, toss the kernels in 1 Tablespoon oil and and 1/4 teaspoon sea salt. Place on a baking tray. Roast the corn kernels for 15 -20 minutes (toss halfway to prevent burning). Corn will be slightly golden brown.
  2. Remove corn kernels, and let cool just a bit before blending.
  3. Peel the garlic. Place the corn, garlic, spices, coconut milk, and 1/4 cup basil leaves in a blender. Blend until creamy. Or, use a food processor or handheld blender. (It may take extra time to get to the right consistency.) For thinner soup, add in 1/4 cup vegetable broth. Blend again.
  4. Pour blended soup into a medium pot. Heat on medium heat until it comes to a soft boil. About 2-3 minutes. Then, reduce the heat to low until ready to serve.
  5. Serve in bowls with fresh basil on top, extra chili sauce, extra roasted corn, and black pepper or peppercorn.
  6. Optional topping – A drizzle of coconut milk and olive oil, plus jalapeño slices.
  7. Store in fridge or freezer in an airtight container.


  1. Due to coconut milk/cream becoming solid at cooler temperatures, you will need to mix thoroughly or blend again if you want to reheat.
