A few mounths ago I promised I would share some of my favouite receipes from the cookbooks on my book shelf and I thought would start with my favoute lunch time recipe. I recived Haylie Duffs – The Real Girls Kitchen cookbook a few years ago and it’s still the one book I bring out every mounth. It’s full of easy and healthy recipes and gorgouse photograghy, it really is a joy to cook from!
The recipe im going to share is perfect for lunches though out the week, I make a big batch on the Sunday and keep it in the frigdge ready for the week ahead!
You will need…
- 4 Corn ears
- 1 tabelspoon Earth Balance/ you can also use Butter
- I Onion chopped
- 6 striped Bacon, chopped
- 2 peeled and chopped Potatoes
- 1 chopped and deseeded Red bell pepper
- 2 cups of Water
- 1/4 cup Half – and – Half / Semi skimmed Milk
- 1 4-oz can Green Chillies/ I use a few lose chillies chopped
- Kosher salt and Black Pepper
Cut the kernels from the ears of corn. Warm the butter in a big pot. Add the onion and bacon. When the bacon is almost done, add the potatoes and red bell pepper. Once the potatoes are soft, add corn, half – and- half, chillies, salt, and pepper.
You can enjoy this soup a couple of ways. You can leave it chunky, or you can run it thought a food mill. You can also blend it in a vitamax or use a handheld blender. ( I use a potatoe masher and only mash a little so its still a little chunky).
