Curried Corn Soup

As we move from 90 degree days to 60 degree days, and in the same week, I find myself wanting warm hearty food. As it is now the harvest season one finds a bounty of fresh foods.

One item I’ve noticed in the local stores and roadside stands is corn.

Perhaps a play on my curried butternut soup, but with corn and the star.

I’ll serve this with homemade croutons, fresh jalapeno cheddar bread, and, of course butter for that lucious bread.

Notes

One can make this vegan by swapping butter for margarine, chicken stock for veggie.
One looks for a taste that starts sweet, moves to a hint of salt and finishes with a bit of heat.
I'd serve this with croutons, perhaps a bit of cheese on top, butted sliced bread passed to the side.
One can use varying amounts of curry paste and peppers to control the heat
