I am not a cook. Well, I can cook but not as good as my siblings. They whip some real great tasting meals, believe me. But when I have time and I am in the mood, I cook. It’s a hit and miss thing for me, though. 🙂
Anyway, since rainy days are now upon us, I was craving for corn soup for the past few weeks but since I can’t find (I don’t know where to find, rather) native corn for what I have in mind, I settled for the sweet corn that I found in the grocery. So, here’s what I came up with – Malunggay and Corn soup. A hearty soup for a rainy day. 🙂
When I cook, I don’t follow measurements (not like when I bake). I estimate; from ingredients to seasoning. I also don’t use those instant seasoning that contains MSG. I haven’t been using any of those products for more than 10 years now. So here’s my recipe (very basic, I tell you):
Malunggay and Corn Soup
- 1 chicken breast, chopped according to the size you like (you can use other chicken parts, too, whatever suits your taste)
- 2 cloves of garlic (you can add more if you like)
- 1 small red onion
- 2 medium sized sweet corn, grated
- one bunch malunggay (moringa) leaves
- Saute garlic, onion and chicken until chicken loses that pink, raw color. Season with salt and pepper.
- Add water and bring to a boil.
- Add grated corn, simmer for about 5-10 minutes or until corn is cooked.
- Add malunggay leaves, season according to taste, and simmer for another 5 minutes.
This is perfect for rainy season. Like you, I also don’t use instant seasoning. 🙂
I love this! I will try this and dali lang hehehe. Thank you sis for sharing this. first time ko na pwede pala ang corn sa tinola.
One of our favorite soups! I use cream corn instead of the kernels 🙂
I’ll try that next time 😊
Ay favorite ko ‘to! Very delicious and healthy! Every mom should cook this to show her child that healthy food can be yummy, too!
True! I’m happy that my son loved this too 😊
Naku, favorite ko ito! True, it is hard yo find native corn unless you go to a large wet market. I could buy before sa Marikina Market. 🙂
Thanks for the tip! I’ll ask my work colleague to find one for me this weekend 😊
Aw, this is easy, I can do this (not a good cook here as well, haha). Parang ang sarap, fave ng anak ko ang corn. 🙂
Same here! I cook but not as well as my siblings haha.This looks like a simple recipe.Thanks for sharing coz malunggay is great for breastfeeding moms like me!
This sounds so easy! And very healthy too! We always just use canned corn also. The kids love eating corn.
I don’t use canned. 😊 but you can use that for this. I prefer the fresh corn 😊
You gave me an idea what to do with our malunggay plant. This is a simple but healthy dish that everyone will enjoy.
Malunggay is one of the healthiest vegetables so this is a really good recipe. Corn makes this recipe a little bit sweet and unique from the dishes I cook.
I heard malunggay has many essential nutrients that good for our body. It’s good for lactating women too. I would love to try this recipe for my son.
Oh it’s similar to the chicken soup with kale and peas that I tried before. you know what I’m excited about? YOu sharing bout your baking. Di ka pa nagluluto nyan ha, haha.
I’ll see what I can do about the baking one. 😊
I love Malunggay and corn soup! Add some shrimp into this and it will be more flavorful!
Awww, too bad I’m allergic to shrimp…
Thanks for sharing! I love corn but haven’t tried mixing with malunggay 🙂
Yum! My husband likes naman the other kind of corn for this dish – yung pang-gulay. This is perfect for the raiy season nga. 🙂
Thanks for sharing! Have a nice day
You’re welcome! 🙂 Let me know how your version goes. 🙂
I’m also not a fantastic cook. I mean I can cook a dish and sometimes I’ll create a great dish. Haven’t tried this particular soup yet. Willing to try it though since we like corn.
Hi Louisa! I would suggest to use the native corn. 🙂
