Process: Fry the onions, then add the sweetcorn kernels and gently fry them until slightly golden. Add three-quarters of the vegetable stock and simmer gently. Mix the cornflour and the milk in a separate container and then add them to the pan to thicken the stock. Crumble the cheese and stir in to the soup, followed by the laverbread (or herbs) and the spinach. Add more stock/spinach if preferred. Bring to simmering point and then finally stir in the buttermilk or sour cream.
