This is a simple Pinoy Clam and Corn soup, not chowder and it doesnt have cream. Which is terrific if you’re like me whose trying to lose weight.

Truth be told, I only did this recipe because I’m trying to avoid very rich food lately and Im looking for simple and delicious foods to share.

This is the kind of soup that is almost like the American Chicken Soup, it’s healing and makes you feel good.

Clam and Corn Soup


2 teaspoons oil

2 chorizo (sliced diagonally) (optional)

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon chopped ginger

2 tablespoons sliced onion

1/4 kilo clams (soaked and cleaned)


1 cup fresh young corn (removed from cob) (or canned if not in season)

salt to taste

malunggay leaves


  1. Saute garlic, onions, and ginger in oil. Add chorizo.
  2. Add corn and enough water for the soup. Bring to a boil.
  3. Add clams and season to taste. Continue cooking until the clams open.
  4. Before serving, add malunggay leaves.

PS, I forgot to take a picture when I made this, will upload another one soon!
