Sweet corn and asparagus soup, juicy, sweet corn and fresh asparagus make a unique choice as soup ingredients- in fact it is a winning combination! although traditional sweet corn chinese soup is more popular, adding asparagus makes for an interesting twist. If you spot juicy asparagus stalks in the market, then you definitely must try this soup. Blanch the asparagus and ensure that you retain the fresh green color in the soup, a great contrast to the bright yellow corn in the soup. Soya sauce, sugar and salt add the other flavors. A thick, delicious soup that will please your guests!
