I love this soup, and this is the perfect time of year to make it with summer corn at it’s sweetest! The temperatures we were having last week were in the high nineties and soup was the last thing on my mind. But finally we are back in the eighties, and a bowl of soup is always comforting to me.

Corn Soup with Queso Fresco

Inspired from a Colombian soup called Crema De Mazorca from the Andean region of Colombia, this corn soup is sweet and creamy, made with fresh summer corn. I didn’t use any cream, instead it’s simmered in milk and thickened with a potato, once pureed it’s thick and velvety. Then I finished it with some crumbled queso fresco and fresh cilantro which gives it that sweet-savory finish that we love in my home!

If you can’t find queso fresco in your area, try another salty cheese like cotija, ricotta salata or a mild feta.

Sure, you could probably make this from frozen corn, but I don’t think it would taste nearly as good so for best results, make this with fresh corn while it’s in season. This is a great meatless soup, perfect for vegetarians and it also happens to be gluten free!
