  1. Your so right about the colder weather settling in, the nights have been quite chilly and your chicken & corn soup sounds like a winner! Pea and ham was on our menu this week and Sunday night we had long soup with udon noodles and prawns, never a dull soup moment in the kitchen! x

  2. I love the idea of putting garlic and ginger in with the soup – this is one I love, so will be giving your version a go soon…even though we´re moving into summer here, I can eat soup most of the year!

  3. I’d love someone to whip me up a batch of this for dinner tonight. (It’s Sunday here and I avoid cooking on the weekends. Lazy.)

  4. It sounds delicious! The weather here was all summer till yesterday (today it’s sooooo cold; so I know how a soup would do in this case!!!)

  5. Oh yeah it sounds pretty easy and agree it’s nice for cold weather. SF has been showering and pretty cold. It was hot one week then cold again. I should enjoy cooking and eating soup before it gets too warm again. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Adding Coriander and cornflour is new to me and I must try! 🙂

Don't be shy, leave a reply. :-)
