Expert Tips

I recently took a trip to Argentina where I tried an amazing vegetarian soup called sopa de choclo, or corn soup. It was perfectly soothing and hit all the comforts of a warm bowl of soup. I love that it is so simple to make, yet extremely flavorful.

Directions

  • 1 Shave kernels off corn cobs. Do not throw away cobs.
  • 2 In a pot over a medium heat, add in butter and allow to melt.
  • 3 Add in onion, corn kernels, and garlic. Sauté for 5 minutes.
  • 4 Add in vegetable broth and bring to a boil.
  • 5 Add in potato cubes, corn cobs and bay leaf.
  • 6 Let the soup boil for 20 minutes.
  • 7 Remove corn cobs and bay leaf from soup.
  • 8 Place the entire batch of soup into a blender and pour in half and half cream. Sprinkle salt over the top.
  • 9 Blend until smooth.
  • 10 Pour into a bowl and serve hot.
