I am not a great fan of soups but the cool weather forces me to try one.A cup of hot soup soothes cold and cough and provides relief from those symptoms.I usually make tomato soup and this time wanted to try sweet corn vegetable soup and browsed a lot of recipes.It turned out that making sweet corn vegetable soup is very simple with few ingredients apart from the veggies.I had some spinach too and so I added it to this soup.It tasted very yummy when served hot in this cold winter.
Preparation time:25 mins
Sweet corn -1/4 cup
Finely chopped vegetables(carrot,French beans,cauliflower)-1/2 cup
Chopped spinach-1/4 cup
