Corn Soup and Celebrating my 100th post!!!!
I am extremely happy to announce that this will be my 100th post. Finally I made it. I always thought if I would be able to post 100 recipes in my blog. And today, it has come true. This will be my 100th post. :-) Hope to keep posting more interesting recipes. :-) With that happy note, let me go to my post for today...
It was Sunday evening, my husband was taking a nap and I was browsing through my blog to see what new recipe came up. That time I got this update from Deb who hosts the event called Souper Sundays. I got this week's update and the first soup that I saw was this Asian Corn Soup. It was prepared by Deb for her event and I was so thrilled to see that it was all vegetarian. I was just then hunting for some soup recipes and when I found I had 99% of the ingredients at home, I tried it at once. It came out really well.
The original recipe is here . I adjusted the measurement according to my requirement. The original recipe's yield was 6 servings.
Corn kernals - 2 cups (I had frozen corn. Original had fresh corn with cobs)
Yellow Onion - 1 small finely chopped
Ginger - about 1 tbsp chopped
Garlic - 1 pod crushed
Salt - to taste
Lime Juice - 1 tbsp
Jalapenos - 1
Lime slices and Jalapenos slices - to Garnish
Vegetable Broth - 1 cup
Water - 2 cups
Lemon Grass - 2 coarsely chopped
Cilantro - about 12 sprigs
Oil - 1 tbsp
Heat oil in a pan and add onions. Saute till it becomes translucent.
Add water, vegetable broth, lemon grass, cilantro, ginger, jalapenos, garlic and bring it to boil. Let it simmer for about 30 mins.
Strain the broth and discard the solid particles.
Now add corn kernels, lime juice, salt and mix well.
Again bring all these into the pan and bring it a boil for another 5 mins.
I like the way she garnished it so I followed the exact same ingredients to garnish :-)
Really light yet healthy soup is ready.
