    4 med. red potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
    3-1/2 cups water
    1/3 cup soy sauce
    1 tsp. onion powder
    2 tbs. butter
    1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
    1 med. carrot, peeled and thinly sliced
    2 stalks celery finely chopped
    1/2 cup all-purpose whole grain flour
    1 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
    1-1/2 tsp. chopped fresh parsley or 1/2 tsp dried
    pinch of fresh or dried thyme
    pinch of fresh or dried oregano
    2 cups milk (I use 1%, but you can use soy too)
    1-1/2 cup corn, fresh or frozen


Boil potatoes in a mixture of water, soy sauce, and onion powder until barely tender; set aside.

Melt butter in a large stockpot and add onion, carrot, and celery. Saute over medium heat until vegetables are tender, approximately 5 minutes. Add flour, salt , pepper and herbs. Cook over gentle heat, stirring often, for 10 minutes. Increase heat and gradually stir in potato mixture, then milk and corn. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring frequently. Serve immediately in warmed bowels.

Yields 6-8 servings.
