Roasted capsicum and corn soup step-by-step recipe with photos.
About this recipe
A hearty capsicum and corn soup with a distinctive smoky flavour. This creamy and mildly sweet soup is so comforting on a cold winter night. Roasting the capsicum directly on flame gives a unique flavour to the soup. This easy soup is ready in less than 20 minutes and is made with just a handful of ingredients.
To make this soup, I first roast capsicum on an open flame. I then grind together corn kernels with milk. I add this along with roasted capsicum to onions that are sauted in butter. Seasoned perfectly, this soup is so comforting on cold winter nights.
Try this chunky, and creamy simple soup to stay warm on cold winter nights.
