Mais Soupe | Corn Soup

Corn and lime are a match it seems made in heaven and my corn soup will certainly highlight both flavours. I highly recommend taking the effort to make this soup from scratch and make the stock from the husks as this just adds flavour on top of flavour on top of flavour in this soup. 

Delicious corn soup recipe.


4 corn cobs
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion finely chopped 
1 garlic clove finely chopped
1 tbsp coriander powder
1 tbsp cumin powder 
1 tsp white pepper 
Juice of three limes 
2 bacon rashes 
Hand full of fresh coriander finely chopped 


  • Cut the corn kernels off the cob 
  • Place the corn cobs into a large saucepan and fill with 3 litres of water
  • Bring to the boil and simmer for at least an hour, the longer you simmer the more taste you will get for the stock 
  • Once the stock is ready heat in another large saucepan the oil on medium heat, cook the onion until translucent
  • Add the garlic and spices and cook until the aroma comes out of the spices 
  • Place the corn kernels, lime juice and the stock then bring to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer for an hour
  • In a fry pan cook the bacon then set aside, after five minutes (this gives the bacon time to really go crispy) chop into 1cm pieces 
  • When the soup is ready then blitz with a hand mix master food processor until nice and creamy 
  • If it’s hot weather outside then place the soup in the fridge at this stage to chill, if cold weather than serve the soup warm
  • Serve in bowls and top with bacon and coriander
