Fresh Corn and Tomato Soup

Clyda Conrad YUMA, ARIZONA This light and fresh soup is an excellent choice. Sieving the tomatoes, celery, onion and green pepper offers silky smoothness, and it lets the corn stands out nicely.

    Fresh from the vine! Good flavor. I pureed about half the tomatoes and did not put other ingredients through food mill. Nothing like growing your own tomatoes and green peppers.

    With an abundance of tomatoes from our garden, homegrown corn available, and my husband being a soup lover, I thought I'd try something new. YES!! It was a hit!

    This soup was excellent. The only thing I did different was not to put it thru a food mill.
