Corn & fennel soup with a touch of lemon & served with Parmesan thyme crisps

on 23/07/2009

This is a georgous, easy & lovely summer soup! It oozes deliciousness!!
It is a mix from corn, fennel, sjalots, garlic & vegetable stock. It is mixed in a blender. To serve, pour a bit of fresh lemon juice over the top of each bowl of soup. That makes the soup divine! It is served with fresh home made parmesan thyme crisps: they ad a sublime taste to the soup.
This is lovely as a snack, a main dish or as a soup. It really fills you up!

Recipe: For 5 bowls of soup
Ingredients:
** For the soup:
300 gr of corn , well rinsed & well drained
10 fat shallots, peeled & finely sliced
2 fat cloves of garlic, peeled & finely diced
2 medium fennel bulbs, cleaned, hard bottom cut out, the green parts & tips removed, cut into pieces
800 ml of hot gluten free vegetable stock
3 tablespoons of a fruity EVOO
juice of 1 lemon
** For the Parmesan thyme crisps:
150 gr of a block of fresh parmesan cheese, grated
6 to 8 sprigs of fresh thyme, sprigs removed
Method:
1. Take an oven rack out of the oven & line with a silpat or baking sheet. Preheat the oven to 200°C ( 392 F) for 10 minutes.
2. Take a large cooking pot & turn the heat on high. Add the 3 tablespoons of EVOO to the pot. When hot, add the sliced shallots & the garlic. Fry until a bit brown. Stir a lot.
3. After 3 minutes or so, add the corn & the diced fennel pieces. Fry for about 3 to 5 minutes. Stir a lot.
4. Now, add the hot vegetable stock & stir, turn the heat on medium. Place a lid on the pot & boil until all of the vegetables are cooked trough. This will take about 15 to 20 minutes. Stir from time to time. When the soup is ready, pour in a blender & blend until smooth or until it is to your liking. This is a thick soup!
5. In the time that your soup is cooking, take your grated Parmesan & fresh thyme & mix evenly. With your hand, place half handfulls of the cheese thyme mix evenly on the Silpat. With the back of a spoon , flatten the cookies, side by side. You can get about 6 cookies on 1 sheet. Place into the preheated oven & bake for about 5 to 10 minutes until the cheesy cookies are golden brown & cooked. Carefully, take them out of the oven. If they stick to each other, just carefully pull them away. Remove them with a spatula & leave them on a wire rack to cool down a bit. Do the same with the rest of the parmesan & thyme.
6. When ready to serve, laddle the soup in the soup bowls. Pour a drizzle of fresh lemon juice over the top of each bowl of soup. Lay a Parmesan thyme cookie on the side & enjoy!

  2. Marieke says:

    Yum Yum Yum yum yum yum yum,…

  3. That sounds fabulous! I love that wonderful combination of flavors!Cheers,Rosa

  4. You eat so well. A sweet corn soup is one of our faves. Usually we like to put tarragon in it, but fennel also has that same anise flavor, so it sounds like a perfect match.

  5. Yummo! I LOVE that soup–what a great combo! And those crisps are great. I make those Parmesan crisps on Passover with the soup course to make it a little different, and people love it.

  6. Great looking soup and easy too. With corn season upon us, this is a wonderful recipe to make right now. Like your Parmesan crisps too – I call them fricos and everyone loves them. Turn around and they're gone.Sam

  7. I would love to be dinning on that soup paired with your last post a roasted plum salad. Sounds delicious. I just love making those delicate and sophisticated parmesean crisp.

    Thanks you, Sophie! I think that now I'm better. About that soup… here is winter, so one corn and fennel soup is a really good recipe! Regards

  10. I love corn soup – it reminds me of my family on the East Coast. We would have fresh corn during the summer – always eaten within hours of being picked. Love the addition of fennel which is a combination I have not had. And how could you go wrong with a parmesan crisp garnish.

  11. Daily Spud says:

    Corn & fennel is not a combination I've had – but I do love both individually, so would be interested to try them together. As for the parmesan crisps, I'd be well up for those!
