Easy to make & tasty

This mildly spicy baby corn and spring onion soup is a pleasant change from bland canned soups. The MTR line of soups in shelf-stable retort pouches is generally of good quality. The flavor of ginger is discernible.

It’s very easy to make– just boil 500ml (0.5 liter or about 2 cups) of water in a pot, add the paste, and stir a little with a wooden spoon. I make it mostly as directed but substitute about 4 oz. of milk for some of the water and add a few leftover or frozen vegetables to the pot.

Ingredients: baby corn, edible starch, milk, cabbage, carrot, cauliflower, spring onion, salt, onion, butter, sugar, ginger, garlic, cumin, and malic acid.

This soup is vegetarian but not vegan as it contains milk and butter. Note that the label indicates five servings per packet but two or three is much more realistic as it makes less than three cups of soup. Note that the nutrition information is for 5 servings per container, which would be a little over half a cup per serving which is not realistic.
