This Vegan Thai Grilled Corn Soup is super velvety and flavorful, and a great way to use all that beautiful summer corn! Great as an appetizer or main dish!
I was about to write that the first full week of school is officially in the books... but then I realized that this was only a 4-day work week. Eh, either way, it's the weekend!
Weekends are even more precious right now, because we are totally holding on to summer over here. I'm not ready to close up the grill yet for the season. And freaking stay away pumpkin... it's not your time yet.
If you're anything like me, you are eating as many ears of corn as possible. There's such a short window of super sweet corn here in New York, and it's just starting to wind down. Waaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh.
So do yourself a favor this weekend and eat all the corn you can. And as we start to transition into some cooler weather (although it's apparently going to be 90-something today in New York), this Vegan Thai Grilled Corn Soup will totally hit the spot.
Guys. This Vegan Thai Grilled Corn Soup is legit. It's got tons of awesome flavors going on... garlic, ginger, red curry paste, coconut milk... and lot's of corn. Grilled corn gets pureed in the soup, as well as sweet kernels of grilled corn hanging out for little pops of goodness. But that's not all. I simmer the corn cobs in the vegetable broth so even that amazing corn flavor infuses in there as well.
Personally, I love serving up this Vegan Thai Grilled Corn Soup as an appetizer for parties as soup shooters. It'll also work as a great lunch or dinner... but I would probably serve something alongside this Vegan Thai Grilled Corn Soup at dinnertime. Perhaps a salad, half of sandwich, or something like that.
