CREAMED CORN SOUP Ⓥ

The quarantine period has awakened my passion for cooking. Today, I have decided to create lots of more vegan recipes, starting with a creamed corn soup. While Native American creamed corn is generally had as a side with fried chicken or potatoes, the idea of creamed corn is such a delicious proposition for vegans, too. So I set about experimenting. From assumption to hypothesis done right: you can turn creamed corn into a soup with the addition of a few more interesting flavours – and best of all, make it vegan.

Active Time: 40 Hour

Total Time: 1 Hour 15 Minutes

Yield: 1 Bowl

INGREDIENTS

1 BOWLVEGETABLE BROTH
1 CUPMULTIGRAIN NOODLES
1/2 CUPCHOPPED MUSHROOMS
1/4 CUP SPINACH LEAVES
1 ONION
1 CUPCORN KERNELS
A PINCHSALT
A PINCHGARLIC POWDER
A PINCHPEPPER
AS NEEDEDMUSTARD OIL
1 TSPSUGAR
2 TSPCORNFLOUR SYRUP

STEPS

Step One: Boil the noodles and vegetables.

In a pot of hot water and salt, immerse mushroom, spinach, corn and noodles till they are cooked. (While straining the vegetables, collect the water in a bowl as it can be used later as vegetable broth).

Step Two: Make creamed corn.

In a pan, pour a tablespoon of mustard oil. Next, put boiled corn-onion with garlic powder, salt, pepper and sauté on medium-flame. When the onions turn brown, remove vegetables and using a high-speed blender, mix them with a portion of broth to get creamed corn (adjust the thickness of the creamed corn by reducing as much water as you wish).

Step Three: Sauté vegetables and noodles.

Add 5 tablespoons of broth and 2 tablespoons of oil in the hot pan the second time. Put mushrooms, spinach and noodles. Stir for a few seconds on medium-flame till you hear a light sizzle.

Step Three: Pour the creamed corn.

Using a large spoon, drop dollops of creamed corn in the pan. If you want something soupy, adjust the ratio of the broth to creamed corn in Step 2. If you want something creamier, you may add some cornflour syrup as a thickening agent at this point.

Step Three (Optional): Add sugar

Stir everything on medium flame till the soup comes to a boil. While stirring the creamed corn soup, you may add a teaspoon of sugar to enhance its flavour.

Suggested Pairing

Serve soup with multigrain bread.
