Pepper | Sweetcorn | Soup

Pepper and Sweetcorn Soup

I have made this sweetcorn soup with fresh sweetcorn. The corn needs to be cut away from the centre. To remove the corn run a knife down between the corn and the centre. This will let the corn fall away from the core. The roasted sweetcorn gives an extra roasted corn flavour to the soup.


  1. Spanish Onion x ½ 
  2. Green Courgette ½ 
  3. Red Pepper x 2 Sides
  4. Bay Leaf x 2
  5. Fresh Sweetcorn On The Cob x ½ 
  6. Flour x ½ Tablespoon
  7. Vegetable Stock [Freshly made or a stock cube dissolved in water]
  8. Sprigs of Dill / Parsley x 2
  9. Fresh Sweetcorn for Roasting x 3 Tablespoons
