Cream of Anything Soup

It's not often I am in need of a can of Cream of (whatever) Soup, but every once in awhile, I am.  One thing is for sure - you won't find me using the sludgy stuff from a can!  Making your own is super simple and quick.  All it takes is five minutes and, you most likely already have everything on hand.  This is how to make a Cream of Broccoli Soup.  To make a different cream soup, just switch out the 1/2 cup of broccoli for a 1/2 cup of something else (chicken, celery, asparagus, mushroom, potato, etc.).

Cream of Broccoli Soup
Equivalent to one 10oz can

1 cup milk (skim, 2%, or whole)
2 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 cup finely chopped broccoli
1 tbsp unsalted butter
3/4 tsp vegetable bouillon (chicken or beef would work fine too)
Pinch of black pepper

1.  Whisk together the milk and cornstarch in a small saucepan until well combined.  Turn the heat to medium and add the rest of the ingredients.  Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.  Reduce heat and simmer until soup has thickened.

Bon Appetit!
