Ingredients

  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1-1/2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 cups milk (whole or semi-skimmed)

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Combine the onion, garlic, parsley and butter in a large pot, and set over medium heat. Sauté stirring frequently for approximately 5 minutes or until onions become clear and soft.
  2. Sprinkle the flour onto the mixture and stir well, making a thick paste.
  3. Once the paste begins to bubble slightly, slowly pour in the milk and broth, whisking continuously in order to prevent lumps.
  4. Add the corn, cream cheese, salt and pepper and stir until the mixture heats through.
  5. Using a hand-held blender (immersion blender), puree soup until it reaches a smooth consistency. Serve immediately.
