  • Other Variations: Prawns or Cabbage can be used instead of Chicken.
  • For White sweet corn soup: Skip the soy sauce, turmeric and carrots and use 4 egg whites instead of 2 whole eggs.
  • Add 3 tbsp corn starch for a thicker soup.
  • Instead of creamed corn, you can just puree some whole kernel corn in the blender or food processor before adding it to the soup.
  • Usually turmeric is not added to sweet corn soup. I have added for its medicinal benefits during the cough and cold season(winters). Pepper aids in better absorption of curcumin in turmeric. Curcumin in turmeric and piperine in black pepper has been shown to improve health due to their anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and disease-fighting qualities.

Food for Soul

Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.  – 1 John 5:21

An idol is any God-substitute, anything we make bigger than Him. If we take some element of popular culture—whether it’s our leisure, pastime, hobby, or special interest in sports or arts or music—and make that an idol instead of serving the Lord, it becomes our god. We are set in orbit around it, and God becomes secondary.

Idolatry is when God is removed from the throne and something else is put in His place.
But God must always be primary.

Something is fundamentally wrong if we won’t talk to people about Jesus with any kind of passion and enthusiasm like we talk about a sports team or a movie or a TV program. Those things can become idolatrous. The passions we invest in other things should be directed to Jesus.

God bless you!!
