I received a huge box in the mail a few weeks ago. When I opened it, I didn’t expect I was in for a cheesy surprise.
This is definitely a perfect way to get cheesy. Thank you Perfect Italiano for the dose of cheesiness!
Its raining cheese at the GJG household! What to do when you have cheese overload? First, you share it with you family & friends. Then you put cheese in anything you cook! Heehee. This is what I did. I was serving cheese almost everyday for the past weeks to my family. Sssshhh. Don’t tell them! I had to mix it with our favorite dishes- sautéed vegetables, beef stew, and baked fish among others. I was literally making everything cheesy.
Now I still have a few packs of cheese left for me to use. Just in time for the rainy season, I’m sharing one of my easy-to-do recipes. A comfort food perfect for a gloomy day- Creamy Cheesy Crab and Corn Soup. Don’t be intimidated by the long name of this recipe as its actually so easy to cook.
You only need about seven ingredients, most of which you can conveniently find in your pantry.
4 cups of chicken broth (that’s 2 broth cubes)
1 can of cream style corn
1 cup Perfect Italiano Parmesan cheese (grated)
2-3 pieces crab sticks, chopped
2 medium sized eggs
3 tablespoons cornstarch dissolve in 1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon Chinese cooking wine
Three easy peasy steps:
1. Bring chicken broth to boil. Add soy sauce, Chinese cooking wine and cream style corn and mix well. Let it boil again and simmer for 5 minutes.
2. Add cornstarch and the Perfect Italiano parmesan cheese. Continue to simmer for 5 more minutes until the soup is thick.
3. Drop one egg at a time and swirl it. Add the kani sticks and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for another minute or two until the eggs have set. Garnish with spring onions and more kani if desired.
Serve hot and enjoy!
Tadah! Easy peasy Creamy Cheesy Crab and Corn Soup.
You don’t need to sweat it out in the kitchen with this dish. You can make a big batch and freeze it by portion so you can serve it anytime your family wants a warm dish that’s good enough to cure their Monday blues away.
