a taste of summer

I just made some delicious sweetcorn soup in about 10 minutes.

I brought to the boil 4 cups of vegetable stock (I would normally use chicken stock but my vegetarian sister staying with us)
I then added one cubed potato and boiled it for 5 minutes.
I added some frozen corn kernels and brought it back to the boil and let it boil for another 5 minutes before taking it off the heat and whizzing it up with my stick blender (carefully)
Once it was fairly smooth, I added a swirl of cream but it wasn't really necessary.

It was very moreish but needed salt and pepper. I didn't add this to the pot as I tend to heavily salt soup and decided to allow everyone to season to their own tastes

I have a great vege corn chowder recipe I use a lot. Mine also has onion, garlic and cumin seeds sauteed. Then you add the stock and potatoes. Then corn. And at the end you grate some cheese into it and add some chopped chives. :)

Greta sounding soup! I make something similar when I am time poor and it's amazing how good it is, particularly for the time spent! And isn't it just soup weather right now?
