Corn Soup with Tofu Larb



Corn Soup with Tofu Larb

Did you know they grow sweet corn in Thailand? Me neither, but I googled it after I tested this recipe for Food52's "best warm weather soup" contest and they do.

Kind of fun to discover that our Midwestern summer staple, corn, is a natural and delicious partner to Thai flavors. This soup delivers big corn taste in a broth that's spiked with ginger and cilantro and finished with a pile of crispy Thai-sauced tofu, a riff on larb, which is a southeast Asian staple of minced meat flavored with fish sauce, chili's and herbs.



A great recipe by Colleen Rose—you can find it here at Food52

It's a little quicker to peel corn if you lop off the tops. 

Kernals and cobs are used and produce great corn flavor.

He wasn't after the tofu...I was also making peanut butter cookies.
