This sweet corn yellow tomato soup is a taste of pure summer and straight out of Heather Christo’s book Pure Delicious. Top it with a dash of cilantro sauce and you’re day will be made!
When Heather Christo contacted me about her new book, Pure Delicious, I knew I had to get my hands on a copy. This book is full of over 150 recipes allergen-free recipes – right up my alley. I don’t talk about it a lot on my blog, but I have an adult-onset shellfish allergy (read all about it here in my very last shellfish recipe.)
Every trip to a restaurant feels like a dangerous adventure and I carry my epi-pens like its life or death. Because, in all honesty, it may be.
I loved that I could pick any recipe in this beautiful book and know that I wouldn’t have to worry or sub out an ingredient. Secret shellfish really is a thing in grocery store items and I am one of those people who is always reading product labels. No calorie counting here – I’m checking for allergen alerts.
Sweet Corn Yellow Tomato Soup
I chose to share Heather’s recipe for Sweet Corn and Yellow Tomato Soup after a recent visit to the grocery store. I happened upon some beautiful yellow tomatoes and the rest was history.
This soup brings together two of my favorite things about summer – sweet corn and tomatoes. Mr. B ate a big bowl of this soup last night and had a wistful and sad look on his face. I asked him what was wrong – his reply, “I wish you had thought of this recipe; it’s amazing.”
If a recipe gets his approval I’m usually sold but by the way I keep devouring bowls of soup, I can tell I didn’t need his approval at all. This sweet corn yellow tomato soup really is delicious, especially when topped with cilantro sauce.
The only change I made was substituting unsweetened coconut cream for unsweetened coconut milk. It was an ingredient I couldn’t locate but if I ever do, well, you can bet I’ll be making this soup again.
