Sweetcorn soup

Corn Soup

I keep on trying to get my family into soup, but it’s a bigger task than expected. But the days are getting colder the thought of a hot soup is warming my soul. So, I’m not giving up, and I will keep on trying to find an easy to make, family approved, soup!

If you have a (soup) recipe that works for all when served at your table, I invite you to share it with me! Thank you!

The soup that got the closest in our house so far is a sweetcorn soup. I found the recipe under The fact that at least one child liked it and that it’s so super quick to prepare is something I loved.  Why not try yourself, here you go:

Sweetcorn soup


  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) butter
  • 6 cups (1.5 litres) fresh or frozen corn kernels (about 7 ears)
  • 4 cups (1 litre) chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) 15% cream (optional)
  • Salt and pepper


In a large saucepan over medium heat, soften the onion in the butter.
Add the corn and broth. Bring to a boil.
Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes.
Remove 250 ml (1 cup) cooked corn and set aside.
Purée the soup in a blender.
Strain through a sieve. Add the cream and reserved corn.
Adjust the seasoning.

To draw the kids into this a bit more I topped the soup with fried bacon pieces. A dash of chilli powder on the top worked well, too!

Keep cooking – and enjoy!


P.S.: Today is another cold day here and I will go back and cook with an older recipe that all of us like. It has soup in it, so always a good compromise. Perhaps this is something for you, too? Porcupine Meatballs.
We tend to serve it with (garlic) baguette instead of the added pasta.
