Salt to taste Chopped fresh thyme or cilantro Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a large saucepan. Add onion and garlic and cook over medium heat, stirring often until soft, 7 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a blender and add corn kernels, water and cornstarch. Blend until smooth. Melt remaining butter in same pan. Add puree, and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens, 3 to 4 minutes. Add milk and heat to a simmer. Cover partially and simmer 15 minutes, stirring often.
