Sweet corn soup

Actually, I am not a soup enthusiast as I remember taking soups when I fell sick during my childhood days. Besides, it is a hot & humid climate almost 75% of the days here, so I would like to take hot vegetable soup only during winter or monsoon. Nevertheless, I like the idea of serving simple yet wholesome soup & salad for dinner as it makes us feel absolutely satiated. Sweet corn soup with sprouted moong salad is one such hearty and healthy meal that can be prepared with little efforts.

I prefer to use gluten-free arrowroot starch rather than commonly used corn starch (corn flour) as a soup thickener for its health benefits particularly for ease of digestion. Hence this soup can be served even to babies, old people, or anyone with sensitive stomach. You can also check out my other nourishing soup recipes here. Now lets get into the sweet corn soup preparation:

  1. love to get this soup at chinese restaurants
    yours is a feast for the eyes
    so cool that you had used fresh corn, instead of the can

  2. Firstly, the use of arrowroot starch to replace corn flour is amazing. That is a healthy replacement. And when you said easy, this is super easy. Just enough for a good evening snack. Souper, Megala!

  3. Interesting! I only recently learnt about arrowroot. I guess you use it as a thickening agent? Curious to try this recipe!

    1. Yes, I used it in place of corn starch for its health benefits also. When I use corn starch I feel guilty for adding unnecessary carbs, so I like to use arrow root powder for the feel good factor. πŸ™‚ Thanks so much.

  4. This looks absolutely delicious! I like the idea of adding arrowroot powder. Perfect, healthy recipe for winter night.

  5. I, on the other hand, an a sound fiend! I could enjoy it every day and never get bored. In fact, sometimes I go into work with a hot mug of soup in hand, rather than a cup of coffee. Love the sound of this and will have to whip up a big batch soon.

  6. A wonderful soup, Megala.
    Whenever I make a vegetable soup, or chicken soup, I will add corn kernels if I have some corn on hand. They sweeten the soup beautifully, and add a wonderful texture as well.

  7. nice to learn about arrowroot powder!
    I usually use lotus root powder to thicken soup or stew dishes. Lotus root powder is good as a cup of hot desert too~

  8. WWonderful megala,the powder is new to me.I use rice washed water for thickness.
