Cooking is one of my passions. Though I am working, I make nutritious and tasty food at home. My food has less oil and no artificial color.

Fresh Corn Soup

Fresh Corn Soup Topped With Sauteed Veggies

American corn (also known as "sweet corn") is my favorite. I like its unique flavor and crunchiness. Corn combines very well with other vegetables and spices.

Corn is loaded with antioxidants. It has phytochemicals that promote healthy vision. It is also a known source of iron, folic acid, vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber.

This fresh corn soup is mildly sweet and peppery. Garnishing with freshly sauteed veggies on the top of this crunchy soup is my own idea that worked very well. Ginger, garlic, and onions give this soup a pleasant aroma.

Let me now share the fresh corn soup recipe.

    Thanks for reading my hub. Adding sauteed veggie topping enhances the taste and nutrition. The original recipe used smoked bacon slices and roasted corn as the toppings. As I am a vegetarian, I used a veggie toppings. You can use either of them.

    I made a similar version of this just last night. I like your addition of extra vegetables on top. Next time I make it, I'll be sure to add some.

    Thanks for the idea.
