This creamy corn and potato dish is perfect when you yearn for a full-bodied soup with lots of down-home flavor. "I discovered the recipe in a fresh fruit and vegetable cook-book," notes Margaret Olien of New Richmond, Wisconsin. "It really hits the spot on a chilly day."

"Very good. My husband raved about this soup. I only used two very large ears of corn, I added some onion, grated one carrot, added fresh red peper. I used 1% milk and omitted the butter to save on fat grams. I have a feeling I will be making again for my husband. Thanks."

"I thawed some frozen sweet corn and added in some carrots and more celery, veggie bouillon cube and also used soy flour (trying to live a vegetarian life style and also gluten free). Very easy to make and save for me not adequately combining the flour and milk to a really smooth consistency I like it a lot. I love how the flavor of the corn is out front and on display. I contemplated attempting this with a sweet potato but I was afraid of the flavor profile but I may try that in the future. Would definitely try again and will expand the veggies for my own dietary requirements."
