Summer Corn and White Bean Soup 

Print¬†Friendly 

Description:
This quick, fiber-packed soup is a terrific way to use fresh corn. Add a slight kick with a sprinkle of Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers just before serving. When possible try to find non-GMO corn. With over 80% of the corn grown in the north America is genetically modified, and biotechnology companies phasing out non-GMO corn seed varieties, American farmers have fewer choices for finding non-GMO seeds to grow. GMO means genetically modified organism, which is a novel organism created by scientists when they genetically modify or engineer food plants. Scientists have cited many health and environmental risks with genetically modified (GM) foods. As a result of these risks, many people in the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan, and other nations are demanding non-genetically modified (non-GMO) foods. Visit your local farmers markets or health store and look for non-GMo corn.
Corn and beans are high in fiber. Dietary fibers are found naturally in the plants that we eat. They are parts of plant that do not break down in our stomachs, and instead pass through our system undigested. All dietary fibers are either soluble or insoluble. Both types of fiber are equally important for health, digestion, and preventing conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity, diverticulitis, and constipation.

1 tablespoon oil
1 cup sliced green onions
3/4 cup chopped cooked ham (about 4 ounces)
3 cups fresh corn kernels (about 5 ears)

Homemade or 2 (14-ounce) cans fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
Fresh or 2 (4.5-ounce) cans chopped green chiles, undrained

Wellness Tip
Soy sauce
Did you know that low sodium soy sauce might still contain 600 mg of sodium per tablespoon? That's about 25% of the -recommended daily intake. Remember - a reduced sodium food, while often better than the original, is not always a low sodium food.
