  • Serves icon Serves 2
  • Time icon Hands-on time 10 min, plus overnight chilling

This bright yellow chilled soup is thrumming with sweetcorn’s delicious flavour, balanced out by yellow pepper and jalapeño for a Mexican-inspired finish. A light little starter or lunch for a summer dinner party.

Chilling the soup overnight is crucial as it helps the flavours to develop and meld together, so don’t be tempted to rush it. Find more no-cook recipes for summer here.

Ingredients

  • 3 spring onions
  • 325g tin sweetcorn, drained
  • 1 tomato
  • ½ yellow pepper
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 3-5 sliced jalapeños from a jar, plus 1 tbsp of their liquor
  • Juice 1 lime
  • 3 coriander sprigs, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil

Whizz for a few minutes until very smooth, then season with a pinch of salt, cover and transfer to the fridge to chill overnight.
