Happy Hump Day! Get ready for some awesome, heart warming soup. I was feeling under the weather on Monday, so a big pot of soup was just what the DR ordered :)
This soup has garlic, ginger AND crushed red pepper flakes in it. It will definitely clean out your sinuses!
I started this soup by sweating ourt some veggies with some coriander. I used onion, garlic, ginger, potatoes, and celery.
Add in a couple of tablespoons of lemongrass. I used the kind that is pre-minced in the tube. It's perfect!
Next, add in 2 cups of frozen corn and your liquids. I used coconut milk and veggie broth.
Puree the soup with your hand blender (or transfer it to your countertop blender), until you have your desired consistency. Then season the soup with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper.
Next, add in one chopped red bell pepper, along with the rest of your corn. Bring the soup up to a simmer for 10 more minutes and add cilantro and lime juice, if using.
This soup is awesome. It's a little fiery, just the way I like it!
