    Lara Ferroni from "Soup Night,"

 

6 bacon strips, diced

2 medium onions, chopped

7 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth

2 red potatoes, cut into small cubes

1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning

4 cups frozen shelled edamame

2 cans (15 ounces each) cream-style corn

1 cup half-and-half

Salt and freshly ground pepper

In a large soup pot, cook the bacon over medium heat until browned and crisp, 5 to 6 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to paper towels to drain. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon fat.

Add the onions to the bacon fat and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the broth, potatoes and Italian seasoning. Simmer until the potatoes are just tender, about 6 minutes.

Stir in the edamame, corn and half-and-half. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Simmer until the edamame are tender, about 8 minutes. Serve the chowder sprinkled with the reserved bacon.

Serves six to eight.
