Sweet corn soup with chili flakes and homemade croutons

Last week I made some homemade croutons – a great way to use up a stale bread. I used them for making sweet corn soup with chili flakes.

You can prepare croutons in a very simple way:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Brush stale bread on both sides with olive oil. Cut bread slices up into small cubes.  Arrange cubes on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 15 minutes or until browned. Let cool. Store croutons in a covered container or plastic bag. 

As it goes for the soup I used the following ingredients:

  • 3 potatoes
  • 1 bag of frozen sweet corn
  • 1 cube of stock
  • Some chili flakes

Preparation: peel tomatoes and cut them in slices; add potatoes frozen corn, stock cube to pot and pour boiling water (the water should be half time more than the ingredients); boil for 20 min; use blender to smooth the soup.

Result- very tasty, simple and quick soup!
