Oneida Corn Soup

This is a soup recipe of the Eastern Woodland Indians.  It was yummy enough that at least one of my children would eat it!  lol!  The other one didn't want to eat it because it had "something green" in it.  Hahaha!  I love my children!  The recipe calls for beef, but the day I made it, I only had ham.

I know it isn't a great picture, but we were hungry!  :)

1 cup fresh spinach, torn
1 15-oz. can whole-kernel corn
1/2 cup cooked beef cut into small pieces
1/2 cup long grain rice
1 quart water
1 tsp. salt
pepper to taste

Combine ingredients in a medium pot.  Simmer until rice is cooked (20-30 minutes).

We ate the soup with Wampanoag Journey Cakes.


  1. wow I am Oneida and I am making corn soup now and it look vastly different than what your trying to portray! Do it right or don't do it at all

    1. This was as very simplified recipe I found in a teachers' magazine for use in a classroom. My husband and I both have a very strong Cherokee heritage, so I love to study Native Americans with my children. Would you like to share the real way to make the soup? I would love nothing more than to have an authentic recipe to share with my children. You are more than welcome to email it to me @ I hope to hear from you!
