{food} vegan potato corn soup


First, let me tell you about this soup.

It's completely non-dairy, and yet very creamy and delicious. It's got garlic and dill and chunks of yukon gold potatoes. I used corn from the freezer that I took straight off the cob a few summers ago. Obviously, it was very good. A nice hearty winter bowl of comfort. Make it thicker if you need a tighter hug.

Now, do you know how hard it is to photograph white soup with white and yellow chunks in it? Hard. I tried to contrast with one of  my blue bowls {only four left from our wedding registry...} but still. I have a lot to learn and not much to work with. Maybe Goodwill will be kind to me and I'll find some cool photo props for my food. :)
