Sweet corn is one of my favorite summer treats. Normally I will just eat it grilled and slathered with butter but sometimes I get a craving for something a little different. KitchenPlay asked me to team up with Florida Sweet Corn Exchange to talk about my love for Sunshine Sweet Corn. I wanted to develop a recipe that would show off the natural sweetness of the corn but also bring in a bit of spicy flavor.

I have been in love with making soups in my Vitamix for about a year now. It makes the whole process so quick and simple you can go from starving to full in just about 30 minutes.

For this soup I simply sautéed some fresh corn kernels and sweet yellow onion until everything was soft and sweet. Then I threw in some smoked paprika because I still cannot get enough of that stuff. I find myself putting it in EVERYTHING. I think I might need an intervention. Instead of using just stock to thin out the soup I opted to use coconut milk. Which is another one of my currently-obsessed-with products.

Oh and see that beautiful little drizzle of red? That my friend is sriracha – smoked paprika, coconut milk and sriracha, just a few of my favorite things all together in one bowl of springtime soup.
