3-Ingredient Creamy Corn Soup Recipe Is Ready In 10 Minutes

Is there anything like a hot bowl of creamy soup on a cold night? I think not. But sometimes the thought of chopping, prepping and simmering a soup for hours just isn't appealing. What is? A creamy gluten-free soup that has three ingredients and is ready in 10 (10!) minutes. Enter this quick, easy, three-ingredient creamy corn soup recipe.

There's a good chance you have everything in your kitchen to make this soup recipe right now. Here is what you need to gather from the pantry and fridge: canned whole kernel corn, milk and butter. The corn is given some extra flavor with a quick trip in a skillet with a little butter, then is whirled to a creamy consistency with the milk in a blender. Season it up and add some reserved corn for texture and this low-sodium soup is ready to be eaten. Just grab a spoon.

Serve this tasty pureed corn soup for lunch or dinner with your favorite side dishes. Or skip the sides and curl up with a bowl on the couch and watch your favorite shows.

Recipe Notes

  • To reduce the sodium, use no-salt whole kernel corn.
  • I always rinse my corn under running water after opening the can.
  • Instead of cow's milk, you can use oat milk or your favorite plant-based milk.
  • Crispy, crumbled cooked bacon or prosciutto would be delicious sprinkled over the top or stirred into the soup.
  • Store any leftover soup in an airtight container in the fridge for up to four days.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the corn and cook, stirring, until it just begins to lightly brown. Remove 1/2 cup of the corn and set aside. Put the remaining corn into a blender.
  2. Add the milk to the corn in the blender and puree until smooth. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan.
  3. Add the reserved 1/2 cup corn to the saucepan. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook until soup thickens and heats through, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Ladle the soup into bowls and top with chopped fresh chives, parsley or green onions, if desired.
