I love a good soup. I particularly love a warm, delicious creamy corn soup that is packed full of flavour and, importantly, that my kids also really enjoy eating. It’s always a hit with my kids and can be varied in so many ways, so I thought it would be worth sharing some of these easy soup recipes. The key to making this work is getting the ingredients right – the soup can only be as good as the quality of the ingredients you use to make it, so don’t cut corners with the ingredients (this is particularly important when making soup with just a handful of ingredients as we really need those ingredients to impart the flavour and texture to make the soup great!)

Corn Soup Around the World
Corn soup is a staple of many different countries. Every culture has their own version, but there are some key differences in the ingredient lists. Here’s how some countries enjoy corn soup in the past and today:
Corn Soup in North America
The American corn soup is a soup that is familiar to anyone who has ever eaten at a restaurant or even just as a side dish in a family meal. The soup is a staple in many parts of the United States, and can be found in many forms, from chicken noodle soup to vegetable stock. The soup was historically made by boiling corn kernels with water and seasoning it with salt and pepper.
Corn Soup in Central America
Corn soup is a staple of at least three nations in Central America – Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize – and can be found in nearly every rural community in the region. It can be made with beef, chicken or pork – though the most common choice is beef. It consists of small pieces of meat simmered in a broth made from corn, beans, potatoes, onions and spices. The soup can be thin or thick – it’s usually served with bread for dipping.
Corn Soup in China
Corn soup is a traditional Chinese soup made from corn kernels, ginseng, and other ingredients. It is a staple of Chinese cuisine and is traditionally served on New Year’s Day or as a traditional gift on weddings. It is believed the first corn soup recipe was created around 400BC by a woman named Guo Pu (貢泽) in China, making it one of the oldest recorded soups in history.
