Crockpot Corn Soup Recipe

I can’t even say I grew up eating corn soup, cause i didn’t. Mamo didn’t do the vegetarian thing and I’ve inherited my mom’s limited menu!

Corn soup is what is sold by vendors in Trinidad and island fetes after the dance, so probably i bruk out on corn soup???? Anyway, i finally mastered it in the crockpot, and damn its so easy!

#4 absoultely loves soup, and when her Dad was going away (not jail, just a vacay) I knew I had to step up my game and try and make it for her.

She actually loved it, and even had a soup dance that I will spare you from watching!

Hardware needed: Large crock pot and blender

Software: corn and other shit

What if recipes were written like those tech lesson plans??? Ok, I’m back.

Ingredients

2 table spoons coconut or olive oil

2 onions chopped

4 garlics clopped

2 potatoes quartered (ya’ll know I don’t be peeling no darn potatoes)

3 large carrots, cut into coin shapes

1 handful of chive

About 7 sprigs of thyme

1 cup yellow split peas (soaked would be super nice, but actually not necessary)

6 pepper balls (pimento?)

2 boxes (8 cups) organic veggie broth

1 large ass scotch bonnet pepper (leave it whole, or else… trust me!)

3 corns, cut into manageable pieces

1 handful of cilantro or culantro or shadobeni

1 can coconut milk (full fat)

Put all except for that big ass pepper in the crockpot and mix it up. Then place the pepper on top and cover it for 5-6 hours on high. An hour before you are serving it, take nearly all of the liquid out and put it in the blender. Return to pot and go about your business for the next hour, and put it on low or warm.

Come back and claim your rightful place as Crockpot Queen!

Let me know how it goes, the kiddos are absolutely annoyed when someone else out there uses their crockpot for good! :-p

I sure did sneak some yellow lentils (split peas) in there! They wouldn’t eat them otherwise.
