The last time I did a food post, the end result looked like turd. And that made me stay-away from doing any more posts about food or cooking, even though my husband and I do a lot of it, home-cooked meals is our thing.
While I’m not a big fan of the cold weather, I do enjoy winter warmer recipes, they are such a comfort and when the days are short and the nights are long, homemade soup is a must. After all, isn’t there an old belief that said “Soup can cure any hurt or illness in this world” If that’s true, then I better start cooking!
Our favourite is this squash recipe, which I cook a lot in the “er” months, and especially after the new year. I actually made a big pot of it which we took over to our neighbours on bonfire night. I’m pleased to say, it was a big hit.
And so since my theme for this winter is all about small joys (although to be fair, that’s always been a big theme in my life: to always focus on the small joys), I’ve been on the look-out for new soup recipes to try. I’m sharing with you lovely folks, my latest find:
Creamy Sweetcorn Soup
I love sweetcorn, whether it’s in a can or a cob and I’m a big fan of corn soup. It takes me back to my childhood where our cook made such delicious corn soup, it would make you want to keep asking for more. I should really ask the recipe from her.
What you will need:
2 TBSP olive oil
50 g unsalted butter
1 garlic clove, chopped.
1 finely chopped onion
150g potato cut in very small pieces
200g sweet corn
600ml vegetable stock
50ml double cream
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1tsp fresh chives.
This is a very easy recipe to make:
- All you need to do is heat the olive oil with the butter and once it has melted, fry garlic, onion and potato, until softened.
- Toss the sweetcorn in and cook for a further two more minutes. Add the stock, reduce heat when it starts boiling for about five minutes or until the potato is cooked through.
- Stir in cream and season to taste with salt and black pepper. Pour in food processor or blender until smooth.
- Serve with a sprinkle of chives.

Every time I try out a new recipe, I always ask my little family whether it is a keeper or not, and this was definitely one. Try it and you’ll know why.
