If you have a big dinner party planned this weekend, you want a great starter or palate cleanser before and between meals. Soup is often light, warm and doesn’t ruin your appetite, but makes you hungry for more. Cream of corn soup is simple to make and very versatile if you are feeling creative. Corn soup is often enjoyed as a starter with a fruity drink. If you want a quick starter for your dinner party, this is it.

Cream of corn soup tips

The reason for the double boiler or bain marie is so that the milk doesn’t burn as you heat it up. If you want a chunkier soup, you can shop the onions into small pieces and leave them in instead of just a light flavouring. Use canned sweetcorn or fresh from the cob. You can even roast the corn on the cob before scraping them into the soup. Add some grilled or steamed baby corn into the soup as a garnish and something to bite into.
