When buying ears of corn, avoid ears with brown bottoms, a sign that they are several days old.
Keeping the husks on and soaking the ears in cold water prior to grilling will help keep the corn moist.
Sweet corn and summer are so intertwined it almost seems like they're one word. Often, by the time summer's over you've had more corn on the cob than you care to remember. One way to spice it up is to make a soup and add some condiments that give flavor, texture, and nuance. This recipe calls for raw vegetables that add texture, and crab, which helps make it a filling meal. Jalapeño gives a nice kick, but poblano works too.

Without removing the cornhusks (just peel them back), pull out the corn silks. Replace the husks and soak the corn in cold water (this will help moisten the corn when you grill them later). Get your grill going. Meanwhile, warm oil and butter in a large pot and sauté onions — when translucent add stock and simmer.
Over high heat, grill the corn and jalapeño, turning as needed. The corn will take about 10-15 minutes. When the jalapeño is black on all sides it's done — put it in a bowl and cover so that the skin steams it and loosens. When it's cool pull off the skin.
When the corn is cooked and cool cut off the kernels. Put any blackened corn on the side. Reserve corn from 2 ears and pulse the rest with the blackened corn in a food processor or blender with roasted jalapeño, milk, and a cup of the simmering stock and onions. Blend until smooth then add back to the pot. Add reserved corn, cumin, lime juice, salt, and pepper and simmer for a few minutes.
To serve, garnish with a quenelle of yogurt in the center, with the diced peppers and avocado around it. To finish, distribute the crab around the bowl and finish with chiffonade cilantro. (This soup can also be served cold.)
Total time: About an hour

Credit: Will Budiaman Harissa is a spicy Tunisian chile paste often used in North African cooking. Here, a milder version spices up a tomato soup made with fresh vegetable stock, and a good amount of farro is thrown in for good measure, making this a light, nutritious meal. If you don't have access to farro, pearled barley would make a decent substitute.
See all farro recipes.
INGREDIENTS For the vegetable stock:
Once it reaches a simmer, reduce the heat to medium and cook until reduced by ½, about 30 minutes. Drain and discard the solids.
For the harissa: Roast the bell pepper directly over a medium gas flame until charred all over, about 2-3 minutes per side. Set aside to cool.
Heat the oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add the fennel seeds, cumin seeds, and red pepper flakes and toast for about 15 seconds. Add the onion and cook until golden, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, peel and chop the bell pepper.
Add the bell pepper and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then, add the garlic, tomatoes, and cayenne and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and transfer to the bowl of a food processor. Carefully blend until smooth. Set aside.
For the soup: Soak the farro in a bowl of cold water for about 25 minutes. Drain and transfer to a pot. Cover with cold water and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook until tender, about 25 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Combine the vegetable stock, harissa, and crushed tomatoes in a pot. Heat through on high heat for about 5 minutes and stir in the farro. Season with additional salt and pepper, to taste. Serve hot garnished with parsley.
Recipe Details Servings: 6
Special Designations: Vegan, Vegetarian, Healthy
Notes and Substitutions: *Note: For a slightly hotter harissa, omit the fresh tomatoes.

Feel free to substitute another whole grain such as bulgur, whole-wheat couscous, or wheat berries.
Whole grains can take much longer to cook than the processed versions; try cooking up a large batch at the start of the week to use later.
