Corn Soup II + Rosemary Flatbread

DSC_0251

Soups are becoming one of my favorite things to make. They are healthy and delicious especially if you make a homemade broth. I made another corn soup (here), that was also very good. Breads are still a challenge for me, but this flatbread was easy and tasty.

Corn Soup II

Serves 4

Ingredients:

4 cups water

1 ham bone

8 ears of fresh corn, kernels cut from cobs, cobs broken in half

2 Tbsp. butter

½ onion, chopped

1 carrot, chopped

1 celery stalk, chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

2 thyme sprigs

2 bay leaves

¼ cup ham, diced

Directions:

Bring water, ham, and corncobs to a boil, and allow to simmer for an hour. Reserve stock. Melt butter in pot over medium high heat. Add onion, carrot and celery. Saute for 10 minutes. Add garlic and corn (reserve ¼ cup corn for garnish) and cook for another 5 minutes. Add stock, thyme, bay leaf, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Cover partially, reduce to low, and simmer for 20 minutes. Discard herbs. With an immersion blender, blend soup till smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with ham and corn.
