Fall season has started officially meaning cold and wind chills are right there to surprise you early in the morning with summer like heat in the afternoon and without a caution the weather changes back to cold weather in the evening. Oh, hold your thought, I’ve not taken a part time job as weather woman nor I can predict the weather or for that matter any thing other than what can be cooked with the ingredients I have on hand. But before I sign off on the weather part of this post, I do love to eat soups and other warm foods especially during cold chilly days and if the soup is tasty it doesn’t matter what the weather is, right?
My kids like corn and almost all the time sweet corn soup gets my kids vote when we are at Chinese restaurant. I made this quick, easy Sweet Corn Vegetable soup and all that my kids noticed was that it had corn in it. The vegetables were in the stealth mode and the soup was relished very much by my family. This is an adapted version of the recipe taken from here.
Heat oil, fry garlic for a minute. Add 4 cups of water.
Add finely chopped carrots.
Let it boil for 3 to 4 minutes. Add chopped beans, finely shredded cauliflower and let it boil.
Puree corn in to coarse paste. Add the corn paste, corn flour mixture, salt, pepper, and corn kernels, add 2 more cups of water. Let it boil until the soup thickens. Serve hot. Enjoy!!!
