Ingredients for the sweetcorn soup

  • 1 leek
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tablespoons of rapeseed oil
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 4 corn on the cobs (or 200g of frozen or tinned sweetcorn)
  • 300g potato, peeled and finely chopped (one medium potato)
  • 500ml boiling water with one vegetable stock cube added
  • 300ml milk (or coconut milk)
  • A pinch Salt and pepper
  • A handful of chives to snip on top
  • A dollop of thick yogurt or crème fraiche if desired


1. With a sharp knife, strip the kernels from the corn cobs.

2. Trim the leek and finely chop the potato. Pop these into a pan with two tablespoons of rapeseed oil and cook on a medium heat until softened. The leeks will be fully soft, but the potato can be slightly firmer as it will finish cooking in the soup. Add a splash of water if the potatoes start to stick.

3. Add the crushed garlic and butter to the pan and cook for around 3-4 minutes.

4. Add in the corn and 500ml boiling water with the vegetable stock cube mixed in.

6. Season with the salt and pepper and simmer for around 20 minutes.

7. Add into the milk and gently heat for another 10 minutes.

8. Once the corn is softened blend and season again if needed.

9. Once blended, add a swirl of thick yogurt or cream and some freshly cut chives to serve.

This sweetcorn soup goes well with Granola bread.
