    2       tb           Reduced-fat chicken broth
    1                    Sweet red pepper, finely
                         Diced
    3                    Scallions, minced
    1                    Shallot, minced
    1       tb           Unbleached flour
    2       c            Corn
    1 3/4   c            Skim milk
                         Dash of nutmeg
    1       t            Low-sodium soy sauce
                         Sweet red pepper rings
                         For garnish
                         Snipped fresh parsley
 
   Place the broth in a 4-quart pot over medium heat.
   Add the peppers, scallions and shallots.  Cook,
   stirring frequently, until the peppers are
   crisp-tender, about 3 minutes.  Add a bit of water, if
   necessary, to prevent scorching.  Stir in the flour
   and cook until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes,
   stirring constantly.  Remove from the heat and set
   aside. Place 1 cup of the corn in a blender or food
   processor with 1 cup of the milk.  Process on low
   until smooth.  Add the corn-milk mixture, the
   remaining corn, the remaining milk, nutmeg and soy
   sauce to the peppers in the pot.  Set over medium heat
   and bring the mixture just to boiling, stirring
   frequently. Reduce heat and simmer for about 5
   minutes.  Garnish with the red peppers and parsley.
