So easy to put together, just a bit of chopping, throw in the pan and done! It was really tasty too, can't say I'm a sweetcorn superfan, in fact I made it more for my husband. But it was hearty, with a good amount of veg and yummy croutons.

We were a little disappointed with the flavour and will try it again using chicken stock.
