Corn is so simple to grow and seems to love our Queensland climate. The last of our corn was put to good use in this nourishing Chinese style soup. For those of you who don’t know that I once worked in a Chinese Restaurant as my first job – I did. Anyways my mum use to love chicken and corn soup from them and she also made her own version using tinned corn.

Being the farmer that I am with a silly amount of corn ready to harvest all at once. I put about five cobs of them to good use to make this soup. Some of you will be familiar with the Chinese style soup I am talking about and how it is usually quite runny and smooth. This is a more chunky rustic version. If you want though you could possibly blitz the corn to a smooth paste, it’s up to you.

    I made a similar soup last week only I grew rhe chicken not the corn! I used the wings and feet for extra flavour and pick out all the bones after 12 hr simmer, then add corn and vege at the end. The neighbour’s kids came over while the chicken was defrosting on the bench, they were fascinated by the feet!

    I harvested the rest of my corn this afternoon and my first thoughts were of chicken and corn soup, so thanks for a quick and simple recipe.

    YUM! corn soup is great. good for big tough corn, full of flavour but a bit of a chewy workout… i also love throwing corn into a vegie slice.

    I love chicken & corn soup and this looks so simple. Pity corn isn’t something that will grow out on the balcony garden.

    I’ve got some corn stashed in the freezer from last year. I love the sound of your soup and will make it this week. Thank you

    I much prefer the chunkier version! I can’t wait until we get fresh corn so I can make this — it’s wonderful! Thanks.

    What a beautiful looking soup! I’m printing it out and making it this weekend – our Sydney weather has been up and down lately, I’m sure it will bucket down at some point, and I love eating soup when its a rainy day.
