    Sweetcorn and leek soup

    340g of sweetcorn (from tin/can or cook/heat in microwave if frozen)
    1 small leek(finely chopped)
    1 medium onion (finely chopped)
    1 quite small tomato (chopped into large cubes)
    1 sprig of parsley
    1 small-medium red chilly (finely sliced, size depends on how hot you want the soup to be)
    olive oil
    salt, pepper
    lemon

    1- heat about 2 teaspoons of oil in pan, add onion and sweat them out for 2-3 min
    2- Add leeks to onions and sweat the lot for another 6-7 min on low-medium heat (don't burn or caramelise them! ) keep stirring
    3- in a food processor wizz 1/2 of the sweetcorn kernels, add water and wizz if it gets too sticky (should become paste like)
    4- add tomato, chilly, mushy sweetcorn and normal sweet corn to onion-leeks, and add 3 cups of water
    5- add pepper and salt to taste
    6- cook on low heat for 15 min, do not let it boil
    7- serve with a dash of lemon juice and garnish with chopped parsley

    hmm.. interesting recipe, BigChef.. !

    Could I extrapolate it to Potato and leek also, or is it much different from this?

    Thanks.. will try it on a rainy day!

    No Anitam. Leek is different.

    Looks a bit similar - (green onions, celery, leek all look similar.. :D).. Green onions are the thinnest, leek the thickest.. Does not have the same 'pungent' taste of celery or oninon...



    You could buy them in any grocery shop..

    Oii.. enna kindalaa...

    The potato and leek soup at the local California Pizza Kitchen is just mouthwateringly tasty.. Never missed a chance to splurge... so I was asking..

    And using food processor.. All girls equipment.. Guys just crush them with their finger tips.. ... No, Ms. BigChef.. I won't use the processor on the potato.. because I don't have a processor.. :P :P

    Thanks for the recipe !
