2 14 oz cream of sweet corn, canned
1 14 oz corn kernels, canned
4 cups chicken broth
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 lb fake crab meat
2-3 green onion stalks, sliced thinly
2 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper
1/4 cup corn starch
sesame oil and roasted garlic for toppings
1. In a sauce pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Saute the garlic
until golden brown. Add the green onions and saute for another minute.
2. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Add the corn and simmer for 15
minutes. Add the fake crab meat and simmer for another 5 minutes.
3. In a small bowl, dissolve the corn starch with some of the broth. Return
the slurry into the pan and cook until the soup has thickened. Check for
flavor and correct with salt and pepper.
4. To serve, ladle a good amount of soup into a bowl and garnish with a
drizzling of sesame oil and a sprinkling of roasted garlic. An addition of
extra sliced green onions gives this soup a nice contrast in terms of color
