An easy, light, low calorie soup recipe that you can prepare in less than 20 mins. I’ve used canned corn cream for this dish, you may blend whole maize too. This soup is perfect for summer when light meals are preferred.

Corn and Carrot both have numerous health benefits.

Corn
Packed with nutrients and vitamins this plant grain helps to regulate diabetes and hypertension. It also helps to prevent digestive problems and hemorrhoids due to its high fiber content. Moreover it is good for those suffering from anemia.

Carrot 
Eat for better eyesight and strong immune system. It is equally good for the digestive system as well as to prevent cancer and heart diseases.
