"Here’s a soup-er easy recipe for a chowder-like corn soup you can rustle up in no time for lunch or dinner. I used canned corn, but ​​it can easily be made with fresh corn on the cob as well, just use two cooked (boiled or steamed ideally) corn cobs instead of the one can of corn, and slice the corn off the cob in the first step. Thanks to potatoes, this is a comfortingly vegetarian, silky soup that can be seasoned to your liking. I go for cilantro and sour cream (or creme fraiche), but you can also add a dollop of scallion oil (try Xueci’s recipe from her scallion oil noodles), a soft boiled egg, shredded chicken, crispy bacon, or squeeze of lime to take it further. It’s your canvas! Have fun!"
