Modified Coconut and Sweetcorn Soup by Tana Ramsay
1. Pour 1 tbl spoon olive oil into large pan and add diced onion to soften for 8-10 mins. Add peeled and sliced wet garlic and 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper.
2. Add 3 sliced carrots to also soften.
3. Add 400g of sweetcorn (tin, fresh or frozen), pour in 400 ml coconut milk. Add 1/2 pint of homemade chicken stock (despite loathing Jamie Oliver, this is quite a good stock recipe) then reduce hit and live to simmer with the lid on until the carrots are tender.
4. Once cooked, blend in batches till at prefered texture. Season and enjoy!
