Chayote and Sweet corn soup

Chayote and Sweet corn soup

Yesterday my sister told me that her friend who also love baking has improved her baking skill a lot if compare to last time. I asked her how she managed to improve, she said her friend recently following recipes in the blogs (she doesn't know i own a blog too) and she said that some recipes from some blogs are more accurate than certain cookbooks. I am pleased to hear that we bloggers' effort and harwork is paid off, as we are sharing our true experiences and tested recipes.
Back to today's post. As what I know from Nami (Just one cookbook) who does Japanese's home cooking that usually comprise of rice, main dish and side dishes. But for a Chinese like me, our home cook usually comprise of rice, 2-3 main dishes (can be meat, fish, tofu and vegetables) and soup. Today I would like to share with you this simple Chayote and sweet corn soup that I cook quite often..

Chayote soup is very sweet, especially with sweetcorn.
I learnt making this soup from Blessed Homemaker. Yeah, it's very true that blogs are good sources of knowledge as it is true experience.

You know I have yet to try chayote before. Lots of them here but never thought of buying it. I've tried some recipes from local cook books but it didn't turn out well. I will normally turn to fellow bloggers recipes as they are more relaiable.

I first tried chayote when I was working in Hong Kong. I remember it being absolutely delicious and sweet. A beautiful clear soup that's for sure.

Your soup looks delicious! We love sweet corn soup!
Regarding the bake-along, I would indicate our next recipe at each bake-along post, so if it is from Rose's Heavenly Cakes or from the same books that you happened to own too, then please do join in, it will be fun! You can always try the Gateau Breton while waiting for your book, it is really good!

Hi Sonia! Thank you for mentioning my blog! After I married to my Taiwanese husband, I started to attend more Chinese wedding and full course dinner. I remember in the beginning I asked my husband, "when does main course end??" It's like main course on parade. I didn't know how much appetite I was supposed to keep for continuous food that was coming. Now we've been married for 6 years, and my dinner consists of rice, miso soup, and meat AND fish as well as some small side dishes. I'm becoming more Chinese Sonia! Haha.
