SWEET CORN SOUP

Light and easy Sweet Corn Soup – veggies like green peas, carrots make it more nutritious. It’s very lightly spiced and make a great soup for cold days.

Sweet corn and vegetable soup falls under the category of thick soup, as we have used corn-flour slurry to thicken the soup. The method of making this recipe is very easy, if you are looking for something to relish as a light meal or something light to consume as an evening snack this is the perfect recipe.

I usually make this for my kids for evening snack after they come back from school or classes and also when we prefer having a light meal for dinner.

I make my corn soup using sweet corn kernels. For the best flavors select fresh and ripe corn.

  • 1 cup sweet corn divided, I used canned sweet corn
