Smoky Roasted Corn & Sweet Pepper Soup

As the season is beginning it’s transition and the evening air is filled with a bit of chill, I’ve been craving soup. So I decided to use what will likely be the last round of sweet summer peppers from my CSA in a nice pot of soup!

Corn is another favorite summer staple of mine and a bag of leftover roasted corn and a fresh assortment of sweet peppers got me thinking…Roasted Corn and Pepper Soup? I’ve been obsessed with smoked paprika lately and I thought the addition of this smoky spice would pair nicely with the smokiness of the roasted corn, and did it ever. This soup was warm and rustic, and made for a wonderful end of summer meal!

This is so tasty. I just made a half batch, substituting cilantro for the thyme. Thank you for sharing!
