  1. 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 1 cup sweet onion, chopped
  3. 3 cups fresh corn kernels
  4. 1 large clove garlic, minced
  5. 4 cups reduced-sodium vegetable broth
  6. ¼ teaspoon salt
  7. ¼ cup reduced-fat sour cream
  8. 1 tablespoon yellow cornmeal
  9. Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  10. 1 scallion (green onion), white and pale green part, thinly sliced
  11. 1 small red bell pepper, diced (about 1 cup)
  12. 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley, or cilantro
  13. Hot sauce, such as Tabasco sauce, to taste
  14. 1 lime, cut into wedges
  1. Heat oil in a large heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until lightly browned, 6 to 7 minutes. Add corn and garlic; cook, stirring often, until the corn is lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add broth and simmer until the corn is tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Stir in salt and pepper.
  2. Using a slotted spoon, transfer 1½ cups of the corn mixture to a blender or food processor. Add sour cream and ½ cup cooking liquid and process until the mixture is smooth, about 2 minutes. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids.) Return the puree to the pan.
  3. Whisk in cornmeal; bring the soup to a boil over medium-high heat and cook, whisking constantly, until it thickens. Add bell pepper, scallion, parsley (or cilantro) and hot sauce; heat through. Serve with lime wedges.
  4. Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
