Sweet corn from the farmers’ market is one of the best things about summer and when you include it in this scrumptious soup recipe, you’ll love the creamy goodness that seems to leap on to your spoon.
You know I’m a huge fan of soup so when I saw this beautiful recipe in Debbie Adler’s latest cookbook, Sweet, Savory & Free, I knew I had to make it.
All of Debbie’s fabulous recipes are plant based without any of the top 8 food allergens. Best of all, they are delicious!
Her journey to embrace plant-based recipes has come through personal experience – her son has many food allergies – and she has consequently spent years researching the right foods for him, for her business (Sweet Debbie’s Organic Cupcakes) and for her readers. This book is the result of hard work and dedication to discovering exactly what we need to eat to lead healthy lives.
And this beautiful corn is exactly what I need in my healthy soup! With onion, garlic, celery and parsnips, this dish is a summer flavorfest.
I can’t think of a better way to celebrate summer than a bowl of this healthy goodness that everyone can enjoy!
