Creamy Corn and Potato Soup Yield: 2 quarts

  1. 1. Creamy Corn and Potato Soup Yield: 2 quarts Ingredients: 1.5qt. Vegetable stock 1 can Creamed corn 1 lb. Frozen corn kernels 1 cup Mashed potatoes 4tbsp Olive oil + 1/2 cup Flour mixed into a smooth paste 1 cup Milk 1 tbsp. Dried parsley (fresh is better) ½ cup Chopped spring onions TT Salt and pepper (I use a tbsp. of soy sauce... I know it sounds weird, but it works) Garnish: As needed Sprigs of parsley or shredded spring onion Method: Heat the stock in a large pan on the stove. Add the can of creamed corn to the stock and stir until they're mixed evenly. Mix in the frozen corn. In a bowl, mix the mashed potatoes with a bit of stock to make it thinner and easier to mix into the soup. Slowly stir the potato in and bring the soup to boil. Add 1 tbsp of soy sauce. (You can leave this out if you think it's too strange.) Turn the heat down to low so that the soup is not boiling or simmering furiously. In another bowl make the olive oil + flour to form a paste. Mix the milk with the paste, stir it with a wooden spoon or whisk it until there are no lumps. Pour the milk mixture slowly into the soup while stirring it very quickly to ensure a smooth texture. (If doing both things at the same time is proving to be a little difficult, just add a little bit of the mixture at a time and stir, then add a bit more and stir... etc.). Add the parsley and spring onions. While stirring the soup gently, bring the soup to a simmer. Add salt and pepper to taste. Turn off the heat and serve in large bowls topped with the shredded spring onion or sprigs of parsley. Notes: Sautéing the corn kernels with spring onions/shallots with butter at the start adds more flavor. I use olive oil to mix with the flour; you can use melted butter or other kind of oil if you like. For an even richer soup, put some cream in it. For people with wheat/gluten allergies, you can use corn flour mixed with water instead of the oil/flour paste.
