Total Time:40 minutes
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 cup chopped yellow onion
5 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
2 baby red potatoes, quartered
4 cups frozen corn
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
Salt and freshly ground pepper

In a large soup pot, heat the oil and butter over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté until translucent, about 10 minutes. (Do not brown the onion.) Add the broth and potatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer, covered, until the potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.
