If you are looking for a recipe to make mom feel special, here's one that's simple enough for anyone to make. Serve it with whole wheat bread or just a salad on the side.
2 bags of frozen corn, preferably organic 2 yellow or orange or red bell peppers 1 medium onion Vegetable broth, 1 32-ounce carton Salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, dash of cumin, spoonful of brown sugar
Chop the onion and peppers and sautee in olive oil. Stir in salt, pepper, pepper flakes, a little cumin and a spoonful of brown sugar.
Add the corn and vegetable broth and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Let it cool off a little (or a lot, if you have more time).
In small batches, blend the mixture until it is has a smooth and creamy texture. Blend just a small amount at a time because hot liquids can blow the lid off a blender.
It's done! You can serve it with any combination of chopped green herbs — parsley, basil, cilantro, green onion. Or toss some toasted pine nuts in the middle of the bowl.
