Sweetcorn Soup

    This sweetcorn soup is deliciously different and great to make when you can find fresh sweetcorn. Frozen sweetcorn can be used in a pinch. Make a big batch and freeze for homemade lunches and suppers anytime.

    I sent my message to soon before I was able to complete it about the Corn Soup. I used Cubed Sirloin Steak cuts cut for me from Fresh Market Meat Department instead of using Pork. I used fresh SpInach and it all tasted healthy and great. Yummy  -  04 Jun 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    this is a great base recipe, but i wound up making a few changes to it since i'm not a fan of spinach. i used panchetta instead of pork, added black beans and diced tomatoes for a little extra flavor. otherwise, delish!  -  26 Dec 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I've all but stopped using it since they changed the site a year or more ago. Every time I try to use it I think my blood pressure rises!  -  14 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
