Corn and Pineapple Soup
Just back from a big fat Indian wedding. The good thing about weddings is that, you get a chance to dress up , see some really cute guys and… the food (of course)!! The not-so-good thing is that, you don’t feel like eating anything for the next few days.
It’s time to ease up.
It’s time to make yourself a cup of tea. It’s time to lie on the bed and stare at the ceiling a bit. It’s time to sit on the kitchen platform and have a conversation, leading nowhere.
It’s time to ease up, just a bit.
It’s time to make a giant bowl of soup. Something sweet, spicy and healthy.
Would you believe me if I say that this soup is the best soup I have ever made? It’s just slurrrrrpalicious!
By the way, did you know that Pineapple is a negative calorie fruit?! Apparently, pineapple requires more food energy to be digested than it provides.
This soup is pure and simple. Corn and pineapple with some spices, and we’re done!
Psssssst…. This soup is super filling too.
CORN AND PINEAPPLE SOUP- RECIPE
1 cup fresh pineapple
1 cup sweet corn (boiled and crushed coarsely)
1 tsp red chili powder
1/2 tsp butter
3-4 garlic cloves
1 tsp black pepper powder
1 tsp mixed herbs
2 tsp fresh coriander (finely chopped)
Salt as per taste
Boil chopped pineapple along with some water until they soften. Blend the pineapple finely.
In a pan heat some butter, add minced garlic, crushed corn and pineapple puree. Allow it to simmer for 2-3 minutes. Add all the spices, salt, coriander and bring it to a boil.
Serve with garlic bread.
Also a dollop of cream on top would be heavenly.
