Corn Soup with Bacon

When I heard about Sweet Corn Root Source Challenge, I thought of doing a corn gazpacho. This turned out a bit of a crazy idea, but I thought I'd share it with you regardless.

Ingredients
2 ears of corn, kernels removed (reserve 1/4 of a cup)
1 cup chicken stock
a few slices of bacon, cooked till crispy, and crumbled
2 tablespoons of red onion, finely chopped
cilantro to garnish
salt & pepper to taste

Directions
1. in a food processor puree all but 1/4 of a cup of corn with 1 cup of chicken stock; season with salt and pepper
2. put the corn mixture through a fine sieve
3. in a teaspoon of oil remaining from cooking the bacon, cook 1/4 cup of corn and the red onion
4. pour the corn "liquid" into a bowl and top with crumbled bacon and sauteed corn with onions; garnish with cilantro
