Sweet corn soup

Actually I am not a soup enthusiast and I like to take hot vegetable soup only in the rainy evenings or winter nights. Nevertheless I like the idea of serving simple yet wholesome soup & salad for dinner as it makes us feel absolutely satiated. Sweet corn soup with sprouted moong salad is one such hearty meal that can be prepared with little efforts.

I prefer to use gluten-free arrowroot starch rather than commonly used corn starch (corn flour) as a soup thickener for its health benefits particularly for ease of digestion. Hence this soup can be served even to babies, old people, or anyone with sensitive stomach.

  4. Firstly, the use of arrowroot starch to replace corn flour is amazing. That is a healthy replacement. And when you said easy, this is super easy. Just enough for a good evening snack. Souper, Megala!

    Interesting! I only recently learnt about arrowroot. I guess you use it as a thickening agent? Curious to try this recipe!

      Yes, I used it in place of corn starch for its health benefits also. When I use corn starch I feel guilty for adding unnecessary carbs, so I like to use arrow root powder for the feel good factor. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much.
