Frozen vegetables are perfect for making soups and we particularly like the fresh flavor of frozen corn. This thick, satisfying soup gets a spicy kick from curry powder and hot sauce, but it's still on the mild side--add more hot sauce to turn the heat up as much as you like. Serve with a squeeze of lime or a dollop of plain yogurt and chopped scallions.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 3 minutes. Add curry powder, hot sauce, salt and pepper and stir to coat the onions. Stir in corn, broth and water; increase the heat to high and bring the mixture to a boil. Remove from the heat and puree in a blender or food processor (in batches, if necessary) into a homogeneous mixture that still has some texture. Pour the soup into a clean pot, add coconut milk and heat through. Serve hot or cold.



Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 2 months.

Ingredient Note: Look for reduced-fat coconut milk (labeled “lite”) in the Asian section of your market.

Excellent job! Useful for my curry fix. (: We're transitioning from a high salt diet to low salt one so used low-salt chicken broth instead of water. We also omitted the hot sauce and the soup was fine. For convenience we also used a mini-food chopper to finely chop the vegetables before cooking them so didn't puree the soup itself. As a result we only needed one large pan to cook the soup. Thanks for making a convenient easy-to-prepare soup for our lunch!!! Read More

This was excellent although to keep it vegetarian we substituted vegetable broth for the chicken broth. I used to not like curry but after making a few of the recipes here that called for curry I've developed a liking for it. The "heat" in the soup and the slaw was just enough and we had it with the scallions to keep the calories low. Read More
