About the Recipe

This soup was something I always looked forward to when my mum made it using fresh sweetcorn. It's something of a "go to" soup in Japan nowadays - you can but ig in cup-a-soup packets and cartons - hoe made Japanese sweetcorn soup is truly something to behold.

1 small sliced onion, approx. 130g

1 tsp bouillon

1/2 tsp salt

a little pepper

250ml water

turn off the heat. add the milk, then blend the soup using a hand mixer until it’s smooth
