This soup made A LOT! It took much longer than 20 min. prep, it was closer to an hour to get all the veggies cut up. I added 5 chopped potatoes and some chopped carrots when I added the ears of corn. Instead of pureeing the soup at the end I left it chunky and broke down all the tomatoes with 2 forks ( they squirted out, be careful if you choose to do those). Overall, a very good cold day soup! I will make it again next winter!
