Authentic Corn Soup

Authentic Corn Soup

This is an authentic corn soup that brings out the flavor of the ingredients without using soup stock.
A gentle, yet rich flavor.

Ingredients: serves 4

Whole kernel canned corn
150 - 200 g
Onion
1/2
Potatoes
1 small
Heavy cream (or milk)
100 ml
Water
350 - 400 ml
Olive oil
a little
Butter
10 g
Salt
a small amount

Steps

1. Cut the onion and potato into thin slices. Stir fry on low heat with olive oil until the onion becomes translucent.
2. Add the corn and continue cooking.
3. Add the heavy cream and bring to a boil.
4. When it reaches a boil, add the water, a little at a time.
5. Once it comes to a boil again,reduce to low heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
6. Use a hand blender to make it creamy. If using a regular blender, allow to cool down slightly, then blend and return to the pot.
7. If possible, put it through a strainer for an even smoother texture. Add the butter and let it melt. Sprinkle with a small amount of salt. Then it's finished.
