  • 7 ears corn shucked, kernels removed
  • 4 cups corn stock or vegetable broth separated
  • 4 black peppercorns
  • 2 stems of fresh parsley
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 6 thyme sprigs divided
  • 2 tsp. sea salt divided
  • 1 tsp. garlic minced
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 radishes thinly sliced, for garnish
  • cilantro for garnish
  • red pepper flakes for garnish


  • Make corn stock – Put 7 corncobs (kernels removed and set aside), 4 peppercorns, 2 stems fresh parsley, 2 sprigs fresh thyme, 1 bay leaf, and 6 cups cold water in a large pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 2 hours. Strain, discard solids, and set aside.
  • Heat 1 cup of corn stock in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions, thyme, and 1 teaspoon salt. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook 8 minutes or until onion is softened, stirring frequently.
  • Add corn (set ½ cup aside for garnish) and garlic, cover and cook 4 minutes.

  • Place half of corn mixture in a blender. Secure blender lid on blender, but allow steam to escape. Place a clean towel over opening in blender lid (to avoid splatters). Blend until smooth.
  • Strain corn mixture through a sieve into a large bowl; discard solids. Repeat procedure with remaining corn mixture. Chill at least 4 hours.
  • With extra corn kernels, place under high broiler until lightly charred.
