Super Speedy Sweetcorn Soup

After my recent marathon French Onion Soup making session (seriously, 9 hours?) I rebelled. A quick of frying of some onion & garlic and a bag of frozen sweetcorn and this yummy sweetcorn soup was on the table in 10 minutes. Hallelujah and Amen. Bowls of simple sweetcorn soupLizzy joined me for this sunny bowl of lunch in her annual guise as my fairy tax~mother, submitting my tax return for me. Last year I remember making her a very fancy lunch to repay her kindness, in the form of these Griddled Baby Aubergine and Goats Cheese Towers so I hope she doesn’t feel too hard done by with this super simple soup that took just minutes to knock up. Lizzy, I promise I’ll put more effort in next year ;)

      Smoked paprika is such a staple spice isn’t it? I love how it makes a meal taste meaty (like it has bacon in it) without adding any!
      Thank so much for popping by Nazima!
