  • 1 Red Onion Diced

Equipment you will need

  • 1 Sauce Pan

  • Blender any will do but I would recommend a stick blender


  1. First you need to preheat your pan. So put this on a medium heat whiles you prepare your vegetables
  2. Ok you are now ready to get your soup on the go so start by softening your onions until they turn translucent (this will take about 5 mins) then add your garlic and pepper and let them cook out for another 5 minutes until softened
  3. You can now add your sweetcorn, stock and seasoning and let this simmer for 20 mins to let all the flavours enhance
  4. Ok, now take your soup off the heat and let it cool slightly then blend it to a smooth consistency then enjoy, it is that easy!
