Corn - Celery Soup

Ok who wants soup?? I don't know about you but every winter evening, I crave for a warm bowl of delicious soup, and that encourages me to try different ingredients to make something different than usual! This soup is not only delicious but also fullfilling, and low in calories too. Corns are everybody's favourite, celery has a unique taste and bell peppers gives this soup a nice sweetness. So try this soup someday and cook the natural way!!

You need

2 cups corns (boiled)
3 yellow bell pepper (roughly chopped)
1 bunch chopped celery
few celery stem (finely chopped)
4-5 garlic cloves
1/4 cup cashews (heaped)
1-2 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1 tablespoon oil (divided in half)
1/2 cup water
3 cups stock (vegetable or chicken stock)
salt and pepper (to taste)


1. Keep cashews in warm water for few minutes.

2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a pan and sauté corns, celery and bell pepper till a little tender.

3. When cooled, blend together cooked vegetables with cashews and 1/2 cup water till smooth. (you can strain the soup at this step)

4 Heat remaining oil in a pot, fry garlic and celery stem till the garlic turns golden brown. Add in the purée and stock. Bring to boil and simmer the flames. Cook for 5-8 minutes.

5. Now add lemon juice and dried basil. Season with salt and pepper.
