I made this soup on the stove-top, and made a couple minor changes: subbing green onion for yellow, adding salt, and garnishing with bacon. The simplicity of ingredients produced a lush soup with strong potato and corn flavors. Very enjoyable! I used my immersion blender to blend this right in the soup pot. Served with crunchy ciabatta rolls and seedless red grapes for a rustic, satisfying meal. Thanks for posting this!
