I love soup even in the summer. This one was really good and really easy. Had to share. Unfortunately I realized I can’t eat meats regularly and have a normal digestive tract. I’m back to more plant based.
8 small Yukon Gold, white, or russet potatoes (about 2 pounds), cut into ½-inch chunks
½ small onion, peeled and chopped
3 ears fresh corn, kernels removed (about 1¾ cups), cobs reserved
2 medium carrots, peeled and diced
2 stalks of celery, chopped
¼ cup chopped red bell pepper
1 cup chopped broccoli and cauliflower stalks, outer fibrous parts removed and discarded (about ½ pound)
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
2 tablespoons chopped thyme
⅛ teaspoon white pepper
2 teaspoons ground cumin
3 tablespoons chopped dill
Salt to taste
In a large pot, combine the potatoes, onion, corn kernels and cobs, carrots, celery, pepper, broccoli and cauliflower, garlic, thyme, white pepper, cumin, and 6 cups water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
Remove the corn cobs and let cool. Remove 1 cup of the soup and puree in a blender with a tight-fitting lid, covered with a towel. (If you like a thicker soup, puree 2 cups.) Return the pureed soup to the pot and add the dill. Scrape corn cobs with back of a knife to remove the creamy corn bits from the kernel, and add the bits to the pot. Season with salt and stir well.
