What a great tasting soup. I took advantage of using the last of our summers fresh corn. That added a natural sweetness tot he soup. I also added 1 grated carrot just to add some eye appeal. And I cut back on the potatoes and flour. Just wanted to roll back a few calories. Hubby and I both enjoyed this hearty, flavorful soup. Fresh thyme and sweet Jersey corn made this one a Winner. Its one that I'd recommend trying.Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editor

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.
