Favorite Ingredients Friday- Soup Edition II

Last year I hosted a special Favorite Ingredients Friday Soup Edition and got some wonderful recipes!  I'm hosting round 2 and I hope you'll join me to share more of your favorite soup recipes.  I'll be hosting a soup exchange at my house in a couple of weeks and I'd love to get some soup recipes to introduce to my friends that will be attending! 

My contribition comes from the website of one of my favorite restaurants, Mimi's Cafe. I used to go to this restaurant frequently just to eat their delicious corn chowder soup!  

When Oronzo and I made the commitment to eat at home more often, to save money, I knew that I had to find a way to still be able to eat my Mimi's Cafe corn chowder soup.  Thank goodness for the internet because I discovered their recipe online!   It's so yummy!

Mimi's Cafe Corn Chowder Soup


4 tablespoons butter or margarine
3 cups frozen corn, thawed
6 tablespoons onion, chopped
2 tablespoons sugar
3/4 cup celery, large dice
2 teaspoons salt
2 1/2 cups hot water
1 pinch white pepper
2 cups raw potato, peeled and cut in 1/2" cubes
3 tablespoons flour
1 quart Half & Half


On medium heat, melt butter, then simmer onion and celery for 5 minutes until soft, but not brown.

Add water, potatoes, corn and seasonings. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until potatoes are barely tender.

Whisk the flour into 1 cup of the Half & Half, and stir into the soup. Add the remaining 3 cups of Half & Half. Simmer for about 15 minutes until the soup has thickened to a creamy consistency.

Correct the seasoning with additional salt and pepper if needed. In order to correct the consistency or the soup you may add a little milk to make it thinner. To make the soup thicker, simmer another 5-10 minutes.

Bon Appetite!

Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday Soup Edition recipe!

Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and
be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.
