Pork and Corn Soup

Healthy and summer-friendly pork and corn soup.

Before moving to Guangdong province, I have never thought that slight sweet soup can be so delicious.  We usually cook soups with churchy but less flavored root vegetables like white radish and lotus root in my hometown. Sweet ingredients include corn, red dates, dried longan are usually not included. But the combination of different tissues makes this soup so easy but yummy.

Sweet corn provide a very faint sweet taste to the soup base, not overwhelming at all. Along with the carrots, the soup is quite unique and light. So I believe it should be one of the best soup to serve in later Spring or earlier summer.  To make a heavier soup with more oil in winter days, replace ribs with large bones.

We have lots of yummy dishes in Chinese cuisine use very basic and humble ingredients include soy sauce noodles (阳春面), tomato egg drop soup (番茄鸡蛋汤), shredded pork stir fried with green peppers (青椒肉丝), pepper chicken (鲜椒鸡丁).  It is all about combination and highlight each other. This is another example. At least try once, you will be amazed by the unique taste of the soup.
