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.

  • 1 large potato, peeled and cubed
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 cup half and half cream
  • 1/2 tablespoon sea salt

    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.

  • 6
    Let the soup boil for 20 minutes.
