How to make Corn Soup with Quail Eggs

If using corn in a cob, remove the husk and silk. Trim the top end. Place the trimmed end of the corn cob on the inverted smaller bowl inside the large bowl or use a baking tray to contain the kernel corn. Hold the stem end of corn cob, use a sharp knife, then cut downward, as close to the base.

For the cream-style corn, scrape it with a serrated knife. Save the cob to boil with the soup for a flavourful corn soup.

You can use whole kernel corn in can and drain the water, however cream-style corn is more ideal for a more creamy and flavourful corn soup.

In a saucepot heat oil and melt butter on medium heat. Saute onion, garlic and celery until soft and fragrant. Then add the corn, bouillon cube, water and corn cobs cut into half. Cover and bring to a boil for 10 minutes.
Remove the corn cobs. Add quail eggs, fish sauce to taste, ground black pepper, and beaten egg. Continue cooking uncovered for 5 minutes. Garnish with chopped chives and serve hot.
What to serve 
It’s a perfect lunch or a light quick and easy weeknight dinner pair with Pandesal or toasted White Bread with butter. Also try this with sweet potato dinner rolls with bacon.
