Recipe: Japanese Sweetcorn Soup

By Emma @glasgowfoodie

Sweetcorn Soup from vending machine

Japanese Corn Potage

We never knew how popular sweetcorn soup was in Japan.  It was served at breakfast in our hotel, as a side in restaurants and even hot in cans from vending machines. Since coming back I’ve been missing this comfort food.  Post holiday blues meant we decided to whip together some soup. It’s easy to make and cheap as well.
