    Frozen sweet corn can be used – this is generally organic, but do check, as the market is constantly changing.
    Lactose-free yogurt substitues include organic soy yogurt (i.e. Wildwood) or soymilk curdled with lemon juice (1/2 cup milk to 1 tsp juice). If you don’t want soy, then mix a good protein-rich flour (i.e. chickpea) with an equal amount of oil (here, I would suggest 2 tsp of each), and cook it with the soup to let it thicken.
