Meatless Mexican Bisque

DELICIOUS.

F.Y.I. This is “meatless” in that you don’t put any meat in the soup, however, the bouillon I recommend has beef fat and dried chicken in it.

♦It is easy, very cheap, and yes, another one of those recipes I swear is delicious, even though it only has a few ingredients. You will start to get it. You won’t believe the flavor that comes from this!♦

You will need:

3 very large Russet potatoes, peeled, chopped
1- 15.25 oz can corn
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
2 large green onions (with chives)
3 cubes Knorr “Caldo de Tomate” (tomato bouillon with chicken flavor)
1 cup heavy cream
coarse ground pepper
1 Tbsp olive oil

(Makes a large soup pot’s worth.)

Put potatoes in a large pot and fill with water until just over the potatoes. Boil on high for 30 minutes. Reduce to light boil for 10 more minutes. If water amount has reduced, replenish. Repeat two more times. Remove from heat.

Dice green onions (this is the bulb end only, not the chive end) and saute in olive oil. Ladle potatoes, water, (be sure they are not too hot for your blender!) and green onions into food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Transfer back into pot. Heat on low and stir in bouillon and heavy cream. Do NOT allow it to boil after this point. Slowly add more water, one cup at a time, until bisque like consistency. (I don’t have measurements for the water because it will depend on the size of your potatoes.)
*Add your corn and simmer on low for 5 minutes. Stir frequently.

Add diced chives and cilantro. Simmer for 7 more minutes. Top with coarse black pepper. I really recommend serving this with plain, toasted white bread. Not rolls, or anything fancy. You’ll understand when you try it.
