A great soup recipe for your recipe box!

I stumbled upon this recipe a few weeks ago in my bursting-at-the-seams-recipe binder, and decided to make it for lunch for the kids one snowy afternoon. On a side note…don’t you just love old school recipe boxes…they’re full of family favourites. I spend so much time on the internet looking at recipes I almost forgot how much I loved my actual paper recipe book. A few years ago (pre-blog days) my recipe binder was the only way I stored my recipes, now I store them here on my blog. It felt nice to flip through some actual paper…I realized at that moment that I hadn’t done that in a while…which then made me realize that this simple act of looking through my book was an act of simplification which was my New Years goal. I’ve been so rushed over the last few months that I never took the time to just look for a recipe because I wanted to. Make something because I wanted to do, not because of a deadline. Novel idea huh?  😉 Simplification feels good.

Creamy Corn Bisque Tips & Tricks

  • Corn: Canned or frozen corn works great for this soup. Make sure to separate the amounts into 2 cups and 1 cup. 2 cups will get pureed, and 1 cup will be added later.
  • Cream: You can use heavy cream or milk if you wish.
  • Make it vegetarian: Use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x
  • Category: Soup
  • Method: Stovetop


Units Scale
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup finely diced carrots
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • pinch of red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 tbsp flour
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth (or vegetable broth)
  • 3 cups corn (separated into 2 cups and 1 cup) (canned or frozen)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream (see notes)
  • 2 tbsp chopped chives for garnish


  1. In a skillet, on low-medium heat, melt the butter then add the chopped onion, carrots, celery, thyme and red pepper flakes. Saute until soft.
  2. Once the vegetables are soft, stir in the flour and saute for about 1 minute.
  3. Then add the chicken broth and 2 cups of the corn, and simmer until the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes.
  4. Then take the soup and put it into a food processor and puree. The more powerful your blender, the more creamy your soup is.
  5. Once the soup has been pureed, return it to the pan, then add the remaining 1 cup of corn, plus the 1/2 cup of heavy cream.
  6. Simmer until the soup has warmed all the way through.
  7. Serve with the chopped chives or green onion for garnish.
