Easy Broccoli and Corn Potage

Easy Broccoli and Corn Potage

This is my 4th recipe for simple potage, or thick soups. This potage has the sweetness of corn and is packed with nutrients because of the broccoli. A soup that's good for you too!

Ingredients: 2 to 3 servings

1/3 bunch (130 g)
1/2 small
Canned creamed corn
1/2 can (95 g)
2 teaspoons (10 g)
150 to 170 ml
Soup stock cube
to taste
White pepper
to taste


1. Break the broccoli into smaller bunches and boil in salted water. (I was using a large bunch - if it's small, 1/2 is fine). Thinly slice the onion.
2. Melt butter in a pot and sauté the onion without burning. Add the broccoli and stir-fry lightly.
3. Add water and soup stock cube into the pot and simmer until the vegetables are so soft that they fall apart (roughly 20 to 25 minutes ☆).
4. Add the creamed corn and let it come to a boil. Turn the heat off. Blend in a food processor until smooth and return it to the pot.
5. Stir over low heat and stir in the milk until it reaches your preferred thickness. Season with salt and pepper to finish.
6. Here, I chopped up the broccoli into small pieces and topped the soup with it. It's subtly sweet and delicious.

Story Behind this Recipe

A teacher from the cafeteria in my child's nursery told me about using creamed corn in nanohana (broccolini) potage. I thought that must also work with broccoli. That's how this recipe came about.
