Yum! This week's French Fridays With Dorie is Corn Soup. The verdict: LOVE. The bright, fresh taste of this soup makes it a great way to highlight fresh-from-the-field corn.
I didn't have field-fresh corn, but the corn at Publix was on sale and really good this week. Hooray!
The verdict: Bill and I loved it. D, the youngest, ate two bowls. The other three kids ate it but weren't crazy about it. I do think they prefer chunkier soups to pureed ones. Next time I might leave it chunky and add ham or shrimp to make it more of a full meal soup for the kids, and then they would eat it.
I usually make corn chowder in the winter, using potatoes and cheese. This version, missing those two ingredients, is very light and clean-tasting. We will be making it again!
