 Mexican Corn soup (although I can't figure out what is Mexican about it)
 1 onion, finely chopped 
 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
 6 large ears of corn
 2 tbs minced oregano
 1 qt. veggie stock
 ground pepper
 salt (opt.)
 saute onion, celery and garlic in nonstick pot large enought to hold
 all the ingredients - sauteing in balsamic vinegar and veggie broth -
 until golden brown.  Put one ear of corn in the toaster oven at 500
 degrees until the kernels begin to brown - while that is roasting,
 scrape the kernels from the other 5 ears and add them with the oregano
 to pot.  cook about 5 minutes; then, puree in blender or food
 processor, adding a little of the veggie stock.  Return the contents
 to the pot with remaining vegetables stock and simmer to heat
 thoroughly.  Season to taste.  Scrape the kernels form the roasted
 corn and use to garnish soup Yield: 6 cups
