Cajun Creole Corn Soup
Cajun Creole Corn Soup Courtesy of Louisiana Kitchen & Culture
Louisiana corn soup is like no other. It truly is a soup, not a cream-based soup or bisque found in many restaurants. As a child growing up near the river, river shrimp were the only shrimp that made their way onto our plates. Daddy checked his shrimp boxes in the river every day before leaving for work. These tiny shrimp found their way into many vegetable dishes, but one of our favorite replacements for the tasty shrimp was andouille.
Ingredients: 4 tablespoons oil 2 tablespoons flour ½ cup chopped onion ½ cup chopped bell pepper ¾ cup chopped celery 1 17-ounce can corn, creamed or kernel 1 pound coarsely chopped andouille 4 tablespoons tomato sauce 5 cups hot water
Heat oil in soup pot. Add flour and cook to light golden brown, stirring constantly. Add onions, bell pepper, and celery; cook 10 minutes. Add corn, andouille, tomato sauce, and hot water; simmer until andouille is tender. Serve with hot buttered French bread. Serves 6 to 8.
