Sweet corn soup

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

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.

  3. My daughter and I are big fans of sweet corn soup. I make it often at home, but have never tried doing so with arrowroot flour. What a great idea! 🙂
