Fresh Corn Soup with Summer Sweet Corn and Kefir

fresh corn soup

Recipe from Romancing the Stove by Amy Reiley

This soup was inspired by one of the season’s most sweet and delicate ingredients as well as Green Valley Organics’ lactose free kefir. (Since I’m lactose intolerant, this product opened a whole new world to me–one I was previously afraid to explore!)

Adding kefir to the soup gives it a similar tang to buttermilk but with a multitude of nutritional benefits buttermilk can’t provide. But enough about the healthy stuff, our fresh corn soup is an amazingly silky, rich, decadent and delicious taste of summer you can make in less than 30 minutes!
