i got some fresh corns from a local farmer's market nearby..

I lost my appetite due to the strong medication that I am taking at the moment.  However, I need some nutrients for my body.  Having some easy and comfort food is my solution so I made a big pot of sweet corn soup.  Note that the ingredients that I am using here are very few because I am just using whatever I have in my fridge.  You may add other kinds of vegetables as you like to add more depth to your flavor.  I would suggest leek and celery if you have any.  :) Also, if you prefer a creamier taste, feel free to add some cream or milk to the soup.  

Ingredients: (for 4-6 servings)

3 corn cobs, cooked, cut out

1.5 onion, finely chopped

2 large carrots, diced

6 small new potatoes, diced

3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 vegetable stock tablet

2 bowls of water

extra-virgin olive oil


1) Preheat a pot with oil, add onion and garlic, cook for 5 minutes under medium low heat.  

2) Add the chopped vegetables to the pot and stir, cook for another 5 minutes.

3) Pour two bowls of water and add a vegetable stock to the soup.  Bring the pot to boil for 5 minutes then simmer in low fire for 15-20 minutes.  

4) Use a blender to puree the soup and serve with a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
