Denise’s Corn Soup Recipe

by Denise on April 12, 2012

My dad is retired Air Force and when I was young our family spent four years living on base in Taiwan while my dad was stationed there.  Many of my memories from that time center around food because we were served all sorts of sometimes wonderful, often strange and occasionally scary foods.  Fish eyes anyone?  I’m really happy that my mom brought back recipes for our favorite food finds and this fabulous set of dishes.

Restaurants were everywhere and were very inexpensive so we got to eat out quite a bit and this corn soup was always on the menu, just like egg drop soup is at Chinese restaurants here in the states.  We always loved this yummy soup and it’s very easy to make so I like to put it on the menu whenever we’re having stir fries or the like.

So sorry that was confusing Jennifer! We like to do stir fry type meals like broccoli and beef or cashew chicken and anytime we do Oriental meals like that I love to serve this soup as a side dish :)
