Creamy corn soup with Pesto


corn soup

The cool January breeze makes it an ideal time for scarfs, snuggles and soups. And if you happen to be one of the many battling the crazy Polar Vortex in North America, ‘cool breeze’ is probably a bit of an understatement!

Well, the good news is, I’ve got a deliciously healthy & hearty delight to help you keep warm or defrost (whatever’s more appropriate) over the rest of winter. It’s creamy without cream and the Pesto not only add a tasty tang but will also fend off coughs & colds.

Creamy corn soup with Pesto

Recipe Type: soup, vegan, low-fat, gluten-free, dairy free


Serves: 2-3


    For the Corn Soup
  • 2 ears of fresh Corn (boiled in water with sea salt & coconut palm sugar till cooked approx. 25 minutes)
  • 2 cups Vegetable stock (organic)
  • 1.5 – 2 tbsp white onion (diced)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • For the Pesto (yield 3 tbsp)
  • 1/4 cup light Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup Basil leaves
  • 1 tbsp Pine nuts
  • 1 clove Garlic (minced)
  • Sea salt & ground Black pepper (according to taste)


  1. Slice the corn kernels off from the ears and set aside.
  2. Place olive oil in a wok over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add onions & sauté until soft but not brown. Add corn and saute for another 3 minutes – keep stirring.
  3. Add the vegetable stock and let simmer for about 2 minutes.
  4. Turn off the heat and let cool for approx. 10-15 minutes.
  5. In the mean time, add all the ingredients for the Pesto in a food processor and blend till the content is smooth. Place the Pesto in a small bowl and set aside.
  6. Add the corn mixture with the liquid into a blender and blend well. Strain the content through a soup strainer into a serving bowl.
  7. Re-heat then add a dollop or two of Pesto on the top before serving


If you’re in a hurry, use pre-cooked corn. You may refrigerate the remaining Pesto or use it as a bread dip. Remember to go organic whenever you can!


I may not be able to give you a cozy snuggle but I sure can give you a bowl of scrumptious soup!
