Serves: 6


  • 4 russet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups frozen corn
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 can (13 oz.) nonfat evaporated milk
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. dried tarragon leaves
  • 2 green onions, sliced


  • Chop the potatoes and combine in large pot. Add water to just cover the potatoes, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Using a potato masher, mash half of the vegetables; stir in corn and bring back to a simmer.
  • In a small saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle flour over mixture; cook and stir until bubbly.
  • Add milk, salt, pepper, and tarragon to the flour mixture; cook and stir until thickened. Add to the soup mixture; cook and stir until soup thickens and almost comes to a boil. Serve immediately with sliced green onions.
