“Coco-nutty Corn Soup”

Coco-nutty corn soup by Chinskitchen

Alas, I get round to making comforting and nutrituous soups. Soups are a family favourite in our household especially when the cold weather starts to embrace upon us. They are simple and easy to prepare and make a wonderful light meal or snack. This particular recipe is one of my hubby’s so I must credit him to have introduced it to me. I have adapted it slightly inorder to make it healthier and low calorie. When we first started dating (many moons ago), this is the first dish he prepared for me and I was pleasantly surprised at how tasty it was.

What made this dish stand our for me is the fact that it had three simple ingredients that actually worked so well together with the choice of herbs and spices. You can batch cook this recipe and freeze for those days when you fancy something tasty and flavoursome but not in the mood for cooking. A lovely piece of crusty bread or ciabatta garlic slices accompanies this dish really well.

Serves about 4 people.

  1. made “Coco Nutty Soup” from ChinsKitchen last week. I am a big fan of eating healthy but not a fan of soup, so I am always trying to find soups that make me think otherwise. Coco Nutty Soup just hit the mark, it was delicious, light extremely flavorsome, with a nice “kick” from the chillies! Furthermore a recipe that was just so simple and easy to follow. Loved it …Hubby loved it definitely going to be a regular soup in our household. We had it with home made brown bread with garlic better it was just DIVINE!
