Easy Hearty Corn Soup

Corn has always been one of my favorite foods ever since I can remember. Either on a cob, boiled or grilled, in salads, popcorn or as polenta. This time I was really craving some corn and I realized that the last time I had corn soup or corn chowder was probably one of the last times I was in the USA. Meaning, a long time ago. It’s pretty unusual for me not to already have a corn soup recipe on the blog, so I thought I should remedy that immediately.

Since this summer I’ve been working a lot and I didn’t get much time for grocery shopping, I really needed a recipe with ingredients that I already had in the fridge and pantry. Who doesn’t have potatoes, onions, garlic, some oil and butter, and a few cans of food for emergencies?

So here it is: an easy hearty corn soup that’s simple, quick and most importantly, delicious.

Servings: 2

Time: 40 minutes

INGREDIENTS


1 tablespoon Olive Oil
1 teaspoon Butter
2 cloves Garlic
1 Onion
1 can Corn (340g/12oz)
2 small Potatoes or 1 big Potato
5 slices Bacon
1 sprinkle Thyme
Salt & Pepper
Water

DIRECTIONS


  1. Heat up a medium pot and add the butter. Once it has melted, add the slices of bacon and fry until slightly crispy. Remove from the pot and set aside on a plate.
  2. While the bacon cooks, chop the onion, the garlic, and the potatoes.
  3. Add the olive oil to the pot, along with the chopped onion and garlic. Sprinkle some salt & pepper and cook until golden.
  4. Add the chopped potatoes, along with a sprinkle of salt and thyme and let cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Open the can of corn and add its liquid to the potatoes in the pot. Throw in enough water to cover the potatoes and simmer 10-20 minutes on medium heat until the potatoes are well done.
  6. Throw in the corn and let it all cook for another 10 minutes.
  7. Bring out the bowls, and serve with the bacon on top, and a few sprinkles of salt, pepper, and thyme.
  8. Enjoy!
