Believe us, it’s definitely worth it. But before we move on to the recipe let’s talk on the traditions of soup cooking and, of course, figure out if it’s healthy and why, if so.

     Some historical facts on corn soup

    Creamy corn soup is the first dish in which is partially or totally brought to the liquid or mashed. These soups are perfect for baby nutrition and dietary, they're well-digested and do not cause any stomach discomfort. Unfortunately today we can't say exactly who came up with this simple dish. However, it’s considered to be French. They were able to make a simple, even primitive recipe look and taste like a culinary masterpiece. For example, French cheese purée soup, Jerusalem artichoke soup, or world famous crab soup puree, which literally thaws in a mouth. That’s all for now. Because today we will prepare exactly  creamy corn soup with shrimps.

    A few things to keep in mind while cooking corn soup puree:

    • First of all, keep in mind that such kind of dish usually consists of no more than 2-3 key ingredients. The first one is usually a vegetable. Seafood may be used as a second core ingredient to add some spice as well as deli meats, shellfish, etc.
    • To achieve the best result, vegetable ingredients such as pumpkin, carrots and similar vegetables should be baked, not boiled - it saves more flavor and aroma;
    • While mashing main components, it’s important to achieve the smooth eat consistency possible, otherwise the soup puree won't be soft which is a prerequisite for making it.

    If you consider these rules, you will definitely succeed. And now let’s say a few words based on historical data. Well, it can be assumed that the first corn soup was made indigenous people of Central and South America, and all because they were the first to cultivate the corn. Moreover, Indians used not only pollen and grain, but plants and even stems.

    Health-enhancing features of the dish

    In fact, corn is an extremely healthy ingredient. This product combines fats, proteins and carbohydrates, contains vitamins B, PP, K, and C, phosphorus and potassium. Corn dishes are often included in the daily diets, but the most valuable they are to those who suffer from cardiovascular diseases and excess cholesterol.

    We’ve also shrimps here, and what is their benefit, you may ask. First of all, that is a source of Omega 3 unsaturated fatty acids. Of course, shrimp does not contain so much of it as, for example, salmon, but it is not as fatty. Furthermore, they contain a lot of protein. Imagine, 250 grams of shrimp can saturate your body with a daily dose of protein. And we have not even mentioned vitamins and minerals yet, the list here is very impressive from vitamin A to K and from calcium to copper. The only disadvantage this product has is the high cholesterol, but remember that corn has the opposite properties. So, let’s finally start cooking corn puree soup with prawns, just use our Recipe on HozOboz.
