Default Plantain and Corn soup

This recipe comes from the soup bible by Debra Mayhew. Nice book with amazing photos that really make you hungry! I have not tried it yet but it sounds and looks great.

2 tablespoons butter
1 onion, minced
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 cups peeled and sliced yellow plantains
1 large tomato, peeled and chopped
1 cup whole corn kernels
1 teaspoon dried tarragon, crushed
3-3/4 cups vegetable or chicken stock
1 fresh green chili seeded and chopped
a pich of freshly grated nutmeg
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and fry for a few minutes until the onion is soft.

Add the plantains, tomato, and corn kernels and cook for 5 minutes longer.

Add the tarragon, stock, green chili and salt and freshly ground black pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes, or until the plantain is tender. Stir in the grated nutmeg and serve.
