Wash & cut all the veggies
* Put half of the corn & half the potatoes in a blender together with the coconut milk and blend 5-10 seconds. Chunky is fine. (You can also just do this with an immersion blender for 10-15 sec right inside the pot after it’s been pre-cooking for 5 minutes. Yeah, you’ll purée something of the onion too, but’s it’s not that serious. You’re really just looking to thicken up & add depth to the broth. Sometimes I just don’t feel like washing the damn blender, ya know?)
Add garlic, onions to a large pot and sauté on low for 5 minutes or until the onions start to soften. (You can skip this step, but it does help with the flavor!)
Add veggie broth, spices, other potatoes, blended coconut milk / corn / tater. Bring back to a simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the rest of the veggies. After 5 minutes, reduce heat to low and let cook approximately 10 more minutes, until veggies reach your desired doneness.
Adjust salt & pepper.
Garnish with fresh herbs, smoked paprika and scallion.
