Potato & Corn Soup
« on: April 27, 2009, 05:09:29 am »
Name of Recipe: Potato & Corn soup
Number of People:4 serves
Ingredients:

10g butter
150g onion, quartered (1 medium)
600 - 700g small potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters
500g chicken stock
1.5 cups corn kernels, fresh, frozen or canned
1/2 cup light cooking cream (you can use evaporated skim milk in place of the cream & the skim milk)
1/2 cup skim milk
S & P to taste
1 heaped tablespoon chopped chives or parsley (opt)

Preparation:
Place onion and margarine in TMX bowl, chop 2 seconds/ speed 5.
Cook 5 minutes 100o/speed 1.
Add potatoes and stock & cook 25 minutes/100o/speed 1/reverse.
Add corn, cream, milk, S & P and chives.
Cook 5 minutes/90o/speed 1/reverse.

Leave as is if you don't want a smooth soup. For a pureed soup, slowly bring speed up to 5 and blitz the soup for 10 seconds.  It will thicken slightly more once cold.  If too thick, add some more chicken stock.

This looks fantastic Judydawn and perfect for the cold snap we're having!!  The weather forecast is predicting below 0 each night for nearly the next week!

 This is not meant to be a smooth soup, it will have little bits of potato in it and the corn can still be seen. It will thicken slightly more once cold.  If too thick, add some more chicken stock.


Thanks for another recipe. You really are on a roll.  I sometimes use reverse with these types of soup to reduce the chances of it being over processed, but chopped up.

Made his today and on a cold day it was very warming. My DH kept saying lovely as he was eating ;D

I was listening to Richard Fidler talking to Michael Chamberlain and misread the instructions! But, no harm done. Used olive oil instead of margarine. I added the corn, milk and some shallots with the potatoes. The potatoes were big potatoes cut into smallish pieces. I decided I didn't need to blend it, as I liked the pieces of corn and didn't want them broken up.  Added yogurt instead of cream. Very nice chowder type soup.  DH gave it 4.5/5.

Thanks ElleG - this is one of my very early conversions.  Funny how I used to make it a lot more often in the 'old days' than I do now with the TMX - there are so many soup recipes now that it takes me quite a while to get back to some of the early ones.  Must do so though as I do remember it being rather nice.

With the cooler weather here & playing hockey Monday nights I have decided we need quick easy meals & that it will be soup night, so will add this to the menu.

I made this today using half sweet potato and half white.  I also used 4 tsp Alyce Alexandra’s ‘chicken’ stock powder and water instead of liquid chicken stock https://www.alycealexandra.com/thermomix/2020/5/1/alyces-thermomix-chicken-stock-powder-without-the-chicken
