Ingredients

  • 6 ears sweet corn, husked
  • 4 Cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 Cups water
  • 1 Tablespoon white miso paste
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped finely
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • 3 large ripe peaches
  • 1 1/4 Cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 12 basil leaves, sliced, for garnish

Directions

With a sharp, heavy knife, cut the kernels from the corn cobs and place cobs and kernels in a soup pot. Add the broth, water, miso, onion, garlic, and cayenne. Peel, pit, and finely chop 2 of the peaches and add to the pot. Bring to a boil over high heat, lower the heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the corn and peaches are very tender, about 30 minutes.

Use tongs to remove and discard the corn cobs and cool the soup to room temperature. Purée half of the soup in a blender and return to the pot. Stir in the almond milk. To serve the soup hot, reheat gently over medium heat, stirring frequently but do not allow to boil. To serve cold, refrigerate until chilled.

Halve, pit, and dice the remaining peach. Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with the peach and basil.

Corn Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Corn Cooking Tip

Vegetable should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
