This might be the best soup to ever come out my kitchen. That’s saying a lot because I’ve made quite a few soups that I really love. But there’s something about this one that leaves me wanting to make it again and again. So please don’t let the fact that it’s still summer stop you from making this delicious soup. I can’t think of a better way to enjoy the season’s best produce all in one recipe.
The flavor here is complex with sweetness from the roasted tomatoes and red peppers, mixed with some heat from jalapeno pepper. Fresh corn and zucchini give it texture and body that’s often lacking from tomato soups. I used everything fresh to make this because it’s all in season right now (almost all of the ingredients were local and organic from my CSA!), but if you are wanting to make this out of season, canned tomatoes and frozen corn should work just fine.
This soup has reminded me of something important. Even though I’m on a mission to feed my family the healthiest foods I can, I just really, really love good food. And this soup is good food. You can attach healthy to it if you want, because it definitely is, but most of all this soup is just a fabulous soup. I hope you try it.Print
