Yen Can Cook: Minced Meat Corn Soup

I love corn and I always stock up one or two in my fridge. It is delicious by just simply steam it then spread with butter and sprinkle of salt. Corn also very versatile that can be used as soup boiling ingredients (eg: ABC soup), add in when cooking porridge or stir fried vegetable and of course in dessert making (eg: corn pudding)

I keep my fresh corns by peeling them into kernels which is easier to be consumed.

Inspired by my friend when I saw her post of corn soup that she prepared. Her version was quite basic by just using canned sweet corn, while I prefer more flavors in my soup so I add in minced meat and egg. A simple soup dish that can be ready within 20 minutes. (Refer HERE for another quick soup recipe)
