Manang Kim of @ my tabletop with her post, Sun Tea.

This was the first time that I've heard of Sun Tea, and at first I thought it was a brand! Silly me! lol. Found out from this unique post of Manang Kim that she actually used the sun's 'power' to make this tea! I love drinking tea (usually the hot kind), so I just mght try this myself one of these days. What about you? If you want to learn something new today, then check her out!


This week's Food Friday post is ...uhm, something. I guess this can be categorized under soup, so I'll call it Meatballs, Mushroom, and Corn Soup. :D

I had my first taste of this soupy dish when my father cooked it for lunch eons ago. He used fresh corn kernels (corn was plentiful that time), straight from the cob, mixed it with ground pork, some salt, spices, and added lots of water. Pretty simple, really. The simple procedure, coupled with the delicious taste, made an impression on me. Actually, I love how my father cooks: everything is usually fast, easy, and delicious! But we're straying away from the topic, lol.

My father didn't add mushrooms, but I got the idea when I worked at a farm and the boys cooked their corn soup, which had wild mushrooms and some type of veggies in it. I forgot the name of the plant, but it was growing wild at the farm, together with the mushrooms. I tell you, eating it straight from the pot was highly didn't stay full for long!

My recipe, though, is a combination of both dishes. Shot below are the main ingredients used:
  • mushrooms (you can use fresh or canned, and any type of mushroom will do), 
  • meatballs (seasoned it with salt, pepper, soy sauce, mixed herbs {basil, rosemary, and thyme}, minced garlic, and spanish paprika), 
  • ... and corn (fresh or canned, and any type will also do).

... i also added a carrot, but it was added late so it's not in the shot. :D

The procedure was fairly simple:

  • dump the corn in a pot with a bit of water (it was a bit thick for me), together with the meatballs. let it boil for a bit, then when the meatballs starts floating on top it's cooked.
  • i drained and sliced the straw mushrooms in half and then placed them in the pot together with the floating meatballs and corn.
  • found a carrot and added that too (diced). adjusted the taste (i added fish sauce).
  • after a couple of minutes it was done.

Fast, easy and am happy to say, we all loved it! :D

Uy... I love the new header!

Ako rin, akala ko brand yung Sun Tea. :) As for your soup, I'd include that in my meal plan - I feel that even if I cut back on food, I still am not eating a healthy and balanced meal.

...hehe, Lennon fan ka pala!
...same here, am trying to eat healthy and that includes reducing the amount...which is way hard! lol.

Ang sarap! I always love having corn soup for appetizer when eating out, pero I like this one. :) Weekday Potluck starts every Tuesday afternoon, but I'm still thinking about changing the time to a more convenient one.

That soup sounds the combination of flavors. Thanks so much for usual, my picture doesn't show up (for some reason inLinkz doesn't like me).

Hello!! Thanks for featuring here I really do appreciate it. And I like your "sun power" I didn't think of that lol!! Which is basically what we do soak it under the sun ^_^ And it saves electric bills you don't have to boil water just to make a cup of tea lol!! Anybody could try it, I am addicted to it na.
About your soup I will surely make this one specially we are starting to feel a bit cold here. And fresh corn is abundant now. Thanks again and here is my entry for this week...
