Sweetcorn Soup

Prep 25 mins / Cooking 25 mins


4-6 portions


There is something nostalgic about eating corn on the cob. It’s reminiscent of late summer evenings, eating outdoors.

Sweetcorn is butter’s best friend, and in this soup, you can taste the corn, the butter, and the unbeatable Latin American flavour combination of smoked paprika, lime, and coriander.

Naturally, toasted tortillas go fantastically with this dish, but why not go a step further, and serve quesadillas on the side.

Step 1
One by one, tilt the corn cobs down into a bowl, and holding the core, cut the kernels away from you, using a knife. This can be a messy job, so do it in the sink (or garden!) if you can. Break the cores in half and keep to one side.
