This is a clear, light soup that has elements of Spanish flavor, mixed with a touch of Asia. It is wonderful for a starter or perfect for a light lunch. It is my adaptation of a Paragon Press recipe.

  3. Add the scallions, bell pepper, and garlic, and cook, stirring, 2-3 more minutes.
  4. Add the baby corn and stock and bring to a boil. Cook 3 minutes.
  5. Add the corn kernels and hot sauce, and continue to cook about 5-7 more minutes.
  6. Blend the sherry and cornstarch and add to the soup. Add the tomatoes and cook an additional 2-3 minutes.
  7. Just before serving, add the saffron threads, allowing them to dissolve for a few minutes. Then stir in the cilantro and serve hot.

We loved this soup! It was simple to prepare and very tasty. DH kept asking me why I was stir-frying a soup, lol. The saffron added just the right touch both to taste and color. Thanks Amayzng30 for a delicious soup that we will repeat again.
