Sweet Corn Maneštra

The thick version with sweet corn is the most popular maneštra in Istria. It is made from young corn kernels cut from the cob with a knife, and the remaining sweet kernels scraped off with a spoon. 

You can also put a few ears of corn in your maneštra. They will be a sweet treat after you've eaten the soup. If you find hair from the "corn moustache" in your soup, don't bother taking it out. 

Thanks to frozen and canned corn, this maneštra can be eaten all year long.
