Corn Soup

The infamous Trini Corn Soup. That reviving elixir after you just pulled an all nighter at a fete. You had a ball you had yourself a few boozy drinks and you are not too sure if your waistline or feet are yours at the moment. Still though, you would like something hot and delicious to fill you and sober you up before you head in and guess what!? A hot cup of Corn Soup is surely the ticket. If my spiel wasn't a clear indicator, this soup is a Trini fete staple. It can be inexpensive to make in large quantities, it is usually made vegan style and it.....is.....simply.....delicious.

Before you grab your soup pot and ladle, a gentle reminder. There are two things you cannot make a small pot of: pelau and soup okay. Now that we have cleared that up, let's try this recipe. I do hope you enjoy it.


3-4 Corn on the Cob cut into slices

2 medium Carrots (sliced)

2 Medium Sweet Potato (cubed)

5 English Potato (cubed)

2 cups Pumpkin (cubed)

1 tin Sweet Corn

1 tin Cream Style

2 cups Coconut Milk

2 tbsp Fine Thyme

1/2 cup (chopped) Chive

1 cup Celery (chopped)

5 leaves Chadon Beni (minced)

5 Garlic (crushed and chopped)

3 Pimentos (chopped)

1 large Onion (chopped)

2 tbsp dried Parsley

1 1/2 cup Split Pea Powder

1 tbsp Turmeric

16 cups Water

Salt and Hot Pepper to taste


2 cups All Purpose Flour

1/4 tsp Salt

1/2 cup Water


●Add salt to flour and mix, then bring together with water to form firm dough. Cover and set aside.


●Place large sauce pan or soup pot (we all have one) on high heat and add olive oil.

●When oil is hot add onions and garlic, thyme, chives, pimento, celery,hot pepper and chadon beni and saute for 2 mins.

●To that add coconut milk and stir.

●Using two cups of water mix into it your split pea powder and turmeric powder, well till there are no lumps, then add to sauce pan and stir.

●Pour in cream style corn and sweet corn along with sweet potatoes, pumpkin and english potatoes.

●Add the remaining 14 cups of water and allow to come to a boil for approximately 25-30 mins. At this time the soup should begin to thicken as the other ingredients have softened and are thickening liquid.

●Add carrots and corn to soup. Using dumpling dough begin rolling and cutting into desired shape (I usually cut my dough into four quarters and roll into cylindrical shapes and cut into smaller pieces)

●Add dumplings to dough and stir, add parsley and season with salt. Lower heat and simmer for 10 mins. (feel free to add more water if your soup is too thick)

●Remove from heat and enjoy a piping hot bowl of delicious corn soup
