This simple savory soup has a touch of natural sweetness from summer corn; not only from the fresh-cut kernels, but also from the cob as it simmers away in the pot on the stove before serving. Another summertime favorite - a fresh tomato 'n mayo sandwich - makes an appearance here as well. This humble combination of toasted bread topped with thick slices of juicy tomatoes is something you could enjoy almost daily, not only because of its simplicity, but also because it’s just so refreshing, comforting and down-right delicious. Though we'd normally go for our favorite jar of Duke's at home, we opted for vegan mayo this round to make the meal entirely plant-based and satisfying for all eaters at the dinner table.
