Miso Corn Soup with Blueberry Chipotle Swirl

Serves 4.


    Miso Corn Soup with Blueberry Chipotle Swirl

    This quickly blended soup uses fermented miso paste, sweet raw corn, green onions, and zucchini, turning creamy without any dairy whatsoever. A sweet-spicy fruit swirl brings everything together.


    Tip: Instead of a swirl, top with a raw salsa of diced tomatoes, onion, cilantro, and lime juice.
