Soup, the perfect meal anytime. This corn soup is both beautiful and simple to prepare. Great for lunch or a light evening meal served with a salad and a glass of white wine. Chinese Corn Soup–everyday beauty all around us right here in our kitchens.
Many nights, after coming home from a long day at work or school, there is something comforting wrapping yourself in a warm bowl of soup. Chinese Corn Soup has been on the menu since my designer days. A co-worker introduced me to “Fit for Life” and of course I needed the cookbook. Soup has been a reliable dining friend, from Monet’s Garlic Soup to Creamy Swiss Potato Soup–there are so many soup recipes in the Bijouxs Collection – just search for “soup” and enjoy.
FIT FOR LIFE
Since I have been into “health food” since I was 16, starting the classic, “Gayelord Hauser’s Treasury of Secrets” first publish date of 1951, way before my time. My local health food store was the place to hang, lots of Hollywood people were into these new food ideas. These were ground breaking food recipes and many are still part of my home menu. You can still find original copies of the book on Amazon.
COOKING AT HOME
Those of you familiar with Bijouxs Little Jewels know that I am a big proponent of cooking most of what you eat at home. Eating seasonally is wonderful and now corn is coming season, a great time for this soup. The soup is simple, I make mine in a wok, but any large pan will work. Economy and healthy choices make cooking your own food the way to go. Most of the recipes on my Bijouxs website and in my cookbooks are recipes almost anyone can have success preparing. Many are simple 15-minute recipes.
KEEP THE DOOR OPEN
My standing mantra is “keep the door open,” come in and have something to eat. Most my friends know there is usually something to try, perhaps during the triple-testing of new recipes or just leftovers from photography. My friends, family and co-workers always give me great feedback on new recipes.
Keeping the door open is about welcoming all, come, sit down around the dining table. The everyday beauty all around us, right here in our kitchens.
COOKBOOK NO. 4 BEAUTIFUL FOOD BY DESIGN
This recipe is part of what I am working on for cookbook number four. It is a bit ambitious, using many of my favorite tabletop items from my collection, part of the presentation of simple everyday beauty in the kitchen.
As always, enjoy. B
