This soup is great to make especially when corn is fresh and at its peak. Prepare a big batch and freeze for when you're too busy to cook during the week. Double the recipe if desired to save for later.

Stir the corn into the pot; season with salt and pepper. Pour the chicken broth over the mixture; bring to a simmer and cook another 10 minutes. Add the spinach to the soup and cook until just wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve hot.

I sent my message to soon before I was able to complete it about the Corn Soup. I used Cubed Sirloin Steak cuts cut for me from Fresh Market Meat Department instead of using Pork. I used fresh SpInach and it all tasted healthy and great. Yummy Read More

Excellent! Did make a few changes. Didn't use prawns. Used more boneless pork loin. Used 6 cups broth and added between 1/3 - 1/2 cup uncooked whole wheat orzo. Added one red bell pepper. Added paprika and cayenne to taste. Added one 14.5 oz can diced tomato. Browned pork pieces first, removed, then cooked onions/garlic/bell pepper. Then added rest of ingredients per recipe. Read More
