Corn Spinach Soup | Easy Soups for kids | Gluten Free, Vegan dishes

Soups for Kids – that’s a recurring theme in most of my blog posts. SImply so, we are a Soup-loving family, and enjoy hot / cold soups throughout the year. This month, due to excessive monsoons where I stay, there was an over supply of Corn & Spinach. So, it went into a creamy, Vegan + GF soup that we all loved a lot.

Corn and Spinach usually gets made into a Cheesy Grilled Sandwich at home, but we personally liked the soup , with all warming spices and no cream at all, it’s a fuss free way to feed both spinach & Corn to kids (& a few fussy adults too :p)

For one whole week of cooking different soups, I made one extra portion for myself (ahem! the blog) and here they are presented during this week. Hope you enjoy the spread 🙂

The elder one is a great fan of soups, and I dont mind a bowl of these myself as long as someone else makes it (in my case, I had to make it for myself :-)) .So the elder kid and me dug into these, while the little one ate the croutons and some soups, and particularly enjoyed one soup

Corn is great on fibre, and spinach is … well (supported by Popeye) , we have been told its great on Vit. A. All in all, a great warm soup to dig in on a rainy / autumn / wintery day.

Actually everyday, coz soups are so filling ! Let’s see how to make these..

Corn and Spinach Soup – Vegan, Gluten Free soup

Prep time : 15 mins , Cook time : 15 mins ; serves : 3

Ingredients:

  • Whole corn (on the cob)  – 1 large
  • Spinach (fresh) – 10-12 leaves
  • Moong dal (split green gram) – 4 TBSP 
  • Onion – 1 medium (I used the white, sweet variety)

Method:

  1. Scrape down the kernels of the corn. In a pressure cooker / pressure pan, add the kernels, moong dal, 1 medium onion (diced), 2 pods of garlic and 3 cups of water. Pressure cook for 3 whistles and switch off.
  2. Meanwhile, chiffonade the spinach. In a non stick pan, add 1 tsp butter (or olive oil as I did), add the spinach and saute well. Add a dash of salt and reserve aside. 
  3. In the same pan, add  the onions and saute well till they turn pink. Add a dash of salt and crushed black pepper and saute.
  4. Now make a puree of the pressure cooked veggies along with the water. Add this to the sauteed onions, adjust salt and seasoning. Let it simmer on very low flame for 3-4 mins till done. The pureed corn will make it creamy and will thicken on cooling too.  
  5. Now add the sauteed spinach on top and serve immediately.
