Sweet Corn Soup

Sweet Corn Soup


  • 1 cup sweet corn kernels (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped carrots
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery (optional)
  • 2 cups vegetable broth or water
  • 1/2 cup milk or cream
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder (optional)
  • Chopped fresh parsley or green onions for garnish (optional)


  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter for about 30 seconds in the microwave.
  2. Add the chopped onions, carrots, and celery to the bowl. Microwave for 2-3 minutes or until the vegetables start to soften.
  3. Stir in the sweet corn kernels and continue microwaving for another 2 minutes.
  4. Pour in the vegetable broth (or water) and season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder if using. Stir well.
  5. Microwave the mixture for 5-6 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
  6. Carefully remove the bowl from the microwave (it will be hot), and let it cool for a minute or two.
  7. Use an immersion blender or regular blender to puree the soup until smooth. Be cautious when blending hot liquids; use a kitchen towel to cover the blender lid to prevent splatters.
  8. Return the blended soup to the microwave-safe bowl, add the milk or cream, and heat for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until it’s hot but not boiling.
  9. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed. If the soup is too thick, you can add a bit more milk or broth to reach your desired consistency.
  10. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley or green onions if you like.

Your microwave sweet corn soup is now ready to enjoy! Remember to handle hot bowls and liquids with care.
