What foods do you think of when you think of summer? You probably don’t think about soup, but that might be about to change. This week at NYMM we’re making roasted corn soup, and a bunch of toppings to go with it.

The slow-cooked comforting corn flavor pairs perfectly with toppings like fresh parsley, creamy and tangy blue cheese, and crunchy corn and paprika. Aside from the pop of color and texture, the toppings are easy to make, and are a great way to give your friends or family a fun meal.

I know it’s hot out, but don’t miss the opportunity to make this while the corn (and life in general) is still sweet. Corn is still in season, so get cooking. Bon appetit!
