It doesn’t take a shopping basket full of ingredients to create something delicious. Take this soup for example; creamy, comforting and very easy to make, this corn-coconut soup has a hint of sweet, followed by some savory goodness. You can make this in about 30 minutes, start to finish.

Corn-Coconut Soup with Bacon and Asparagus


  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 6 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels (about 7 ears)
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • ½ cup coconut milk  (optional)
  • salt and pepper


  • 3-4 strips cooked bacon, chopped
  • 3-4 asparagus, blanched


  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, add the butter, then the onion and celery. Cook until soft and translucent.
  2. Add the corn and broth. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for about 20 minutes. Purée the soup in a blender. Strain through a sieve if you want it extra smooth. Return to the pot.
  3. Add the coconut milk, adjust the seasoning. Garnish with bacon and asparagus when served.
