Lighten up and cook something yummy!

Sometimes, hippie comfort food is the best thing there is.

Corn Soup

2 cans creamed corn

1 stalk of celery, diced

3 green onions, diced

2 1/2 cups chicken or turkey stock (vegetarians use vegetable stock) (You can do this with stock cubes or homemade or those crazy carton broths – it’s all good)

1/8 tsp garam masala

1/4 tsp curry powder

salt, pepper to taste

1 tblsp butter and a squidge (that’s the technical term) of oil

Melt the butter and oil in a big pot (the oil is only there to make sure the butter doesn’t burn) and add the diced veggies. Sweat them over a medium low heat for 2-3 minutes.

Add the spices, swish them around, and then add the creamed corn. and stir to mix everything up.

Add the stock and bring to a good simmer for about five minutes, then lower heat and let it cook for another fifteen minutes or so.

You can garnish this with a tablespoon of fresh, minced parsley or cilantro if you like.

Serve with warm biscuits or French bread or challah or something…

This is equally brilliant for a cold winter day or a hot summer night!
