Someone asked me recently what kind of food I usually cook. It got me thinking about my recipes and my dinners. I realized it’s not easy to categorize since I do bake a lot and it’s not simple, I do make fancy dishes from time to time too. But most of the time, it’s quick and simple and healthy (ish!).
I am definitely not a health fanatic, but I try to make healthy (big ish) choices where I can. For example, this Light Vegetable Soup is full of flavour and very light on calories.
A lot of my recipes are simple and don’t require tons of spices or ingredients. I love complex flavours, but I often find that simple is just as good if not better!

I reduced the amount of salt I use in my diet quite significantly a few years back. In fact, it got to the point where I could not eat out since everything was too salty.
Since then I brought back more salt into my dishes, but I still find that there is enough natural sodium in protein and produce that I don’t need to add spices and I let the flavour of the ingredients speak on their own.
Can you use frozen corn to make Corn Soup?
Either fresh or frozen corn can be used to make this Easy Corn Soup Recipe. In fact, using frozen corn means that you’ll have this delicious corn soup ready really fast.
There’s a lot of negativity associated with frozen produce but in fact, frozen vegetables are often tastier than fresh out of season.
So, this delicious and Easy Corn Soup is one of those kinds of recipes: simple yet flavourful. It is also naturally gluten-free! I used really good frozen corn for convenience and the flavour was outstanding! Wonderfully corny (ha!), sweet, creamy and fresh!
How to make this Easy Corn Soup vegan
- use vegetable stock
- omit cream (or use coconut milk)
- don’t garnish with bacon (or use vegan bacon)
I served the soup with some really crisp bacon (because everything is better with bacon), fresh cilantro and toasted rye bread – It was a perfect summer soup, but it would also be amazing during cold winter months.
If you love corn flavour then try this Mexican Street Corn Soup from Striped Spatula; it has cheese and cheese makes everything better!
