Potato Corn Chowder Recipe With Cheddar Cheese

3 medium potatoes, scrubbed and diced
3 cups water
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups corn kernels, fresh or frozen
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives, or 1 teaspoon dried chives
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 ounces cheddar cheese, grated

In large saucepan or Dutch oven, place potatoes, water, bay leaf and 1/4 teaspoon salt; boil until potatoes are barely tender.

Meanwhile, in medium skillet, sauté onion in oil until tender and nearly transparent. Add a few tablespoons of water if onions begin to stick. Add flour and mix thoroughly. Add milk gradually, stirring constantly. Pour mixture slowly into cooked potatoes and water. Stir in corn. Add cumin, chives, parsley, nutmeg, pepper and remaining salt. Simmer over very low heat for about 15 minutes.
