Carrot, Potato, and Fresh Corn Soup
Carrot, Potato, and Fresh Corn Soup

Make Your Own Soup With Healthy Ingredients!

I like to have a soup at least 4-5 times a week. I prefer to sip a puree with different combinations each time. Today, I am sharing a veggie soup recipe that I did according to what I was craving at the time. I picked three healthy vegetables (carrots, potatoes, and fresh corn) to make this puree.

Carrots are excellent sources of beta-carotene, fiber, vitamin K, anti oxidants, and potassium. They are crunchy, colorful, and delicious.

Fresh corn adds a nutty flavor to the dish. This mildly sweet veggie is a favorite of many. Corn has many nutrients that are beneficial for humans.

Potatoes give a nice creamy finish to this soup. They are known to contain high levels of vitamin C, and B 6, manganese, pantothenic acid, niacin, and phosphorous.

I pureed these veggies with fresh spices and herbs to make this delicious soup. Let me now share the step-by-step recipe with you.
