Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to eat a corn soup that would go with soy sauce stir-fry. That's how I came up with this lightly-flavored creamy corn soup.
When thickening the soup, I advice to make it rather runny in the beginning because you add beaten eggs towards the end. If it's too thick, then it gets too dense. Adjust the amount of creamed corn to your liking. I would say adding lots improves the flavor.
