Ingredients

  • 2 stalk – green onion
  • 1 medium – bell pepper, red
  • 1 stalk – celery
  • 1/2 medium – onion
  • 3 medium – russet potato
  • 2 clove – garlic
  • 4 cup – Corn, yellow
  • 1 tablespoon – olive oil
  • 1 each – bay leaf
  • 4 cup – chicken broth, low-sodium
  • 2 cup – milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon – salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon – black pepper, ground
  • 1/4 cup – sour cream
Serve With:
  • 2 cup – grapes

Directions

  1. Chop green onions, pepper, celery, and onion; peel and dice potato; mince garlic.
  2. In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the green onions, garlic, onion, bell pepper, and celery. Cook, stirring occasionally until the vegetables start to soften, about 10 minutes. If using ears of corn, this is a good time to remove the kernals; otherwise, be sure that the corn is thawed.
  3. Stir in potatoes along with 2 cups of the corn, the bay leaf, and the broth.
  4. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Puree the remaining 2 cups of corn and the milk in a blender or food processor, then stir it into the soup. Simmer the soup until it thickens slightly, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the bay leaf and add salt and pepper to taste. Top each serving with a dollop of sour cream, if desired.
  6. Serve with grapes.

A little disappointed with this recipe. I loved othe creamy soups but this one was not a hit with my family. It was very thin and they called it corn juice. I somewhat enjoyed mine but couldn’t eat too much.

Bummer Leah. 🙁 Next time maybe we could make a small white sauce with some flour, or even add another potato and mash it up a bit. I’ll keep playing with it.

My boys ate this with some prodding, I did have to sub out the corn (because of allergies) I used peas and garden green beans (making sure the bean were blended in).

Planning to can up the left overs.

Jocy says:

I just read that it is not safe to can because of the milk so I’ll be freezing the left overs.
