Creamy corn vegetable soup recipe with step by step photos – sharing yet another sweet, creamy soup made with fresh sweet corn and vegetables.
In this soup, the creaminess and sweetness come from the corn kernels. You can also make this soup from tinned corn kernels. But fresh corn is the best.
This soup is comforting for the winters. Both adults as well as kids will like this soup. The soup can also be served to toddlers.
Tips and suggestions
- You can add veggies of your choice or what you have in the kitchen.
- You can even make the soup without vegetables. If you don’t plan to add vegetables in this soup then you can also check this recipe of Corn soup which has a different taste and consistency than this one and is made without vegetables. another delicious variation you can make is Makai ka shorba which is Indian style thin soup made with corn and tastes good.
- There is no thickener like corn starch or cream added in this recipe.
- I have used milk in the recipe as it makes the soup rich. However for a less rich version you can also use water or vegetable stock instead of milk.
- You can add sugar and black pepper as per your taste. Sugar can also be skipped if you prefer.
Serve this soup plain or with some toasted bread. Also makes for a good starter soup in a continental menu.
