  • 3/4 cup coconut cream 
  • 3/4 cup shallots / scallions , green part finely sliced

  • Cut the corn off the cob. Keep naked cobs.
  • Place 1 tsp butter in a large pot over medium high heat. Add bacon and cook until golden. Use a slotted spoon to remove onto a paper towel lined plate. Leave fat in pot.
  • Lower heat to medium high. Add 2 tbsp butter, once melted, add garlic and onion. Cook for 2 - 3 minutes until onion is translucent.
  • Add flour and mix it in to make your roux - this will thicken your soup. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  • Add broth, coconut milk, potatoes, and thyme. Break naked cobs into 2 or 3 and add into the liquid. Put the lid on and simmer for 25 minutes.
  • Remove lid, remove corn cobs. Add corn and cook for 5 minutes or until cooked to your taste.
