Moringa and Corn Soup

Serves 4

2 gloves garlic, crushed
1 small onion, chopped
1 and 1/2 Tbsp shrimp paste
1 Tbsp vegetable oil for sauteing
1 cup shredded sweet corn, keep the husk
4 cups pork stock, if you don't have this, you can always use 1 pork cube instead
2 cups moringa leaves
fish sauce (optional depending on taste)

In a saucepan, heat oil and start browning the garlic, add onion and saute until translucent.

Add shrimp paste and stir for 2 minutes.

Add water, shredded corn and husk.  Bring to boil and simmer for 15 minutes. 

Remove the the corn husk and add moringa leaves. Simmer for 1 minute.

Turn off heat.  Using a stick mixer or blender, blend soup until leaves and corn kernels are blended.  Bring back to simmer for another 2 to 3 minutes.

Turn off heat and serve hot.
