Cream of Broccoli (or any other veggie/meat) Soup

I was surfing through the second best site on the Internet (Pinterest - this blog is number one, obviously) the other day and came across a recipe for Cream of Anything Soup.  I was super excited because cream soup in a can is, well, kinda gross.  This week for dinner I decided to make a Cheesy Broccoli Quinoa Bake and it just so happened to call for a can of Cream of Broccoli, I altered the ingredients slightly, added some broccoli and this is what I got.  It was so quick and easy!

Cream of Broccoli Soup
Equivalent to one 10oz can

1 cup skim milk
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.  Reduced heat and simmer until soup has thickened.

*To make a different 'flavor' cream soup, just replace the 1/2 cup broccoli for 1/2 cup cooked veggie or chicken.  I'm making a Cream of Potato this weekend for a different recipe :)
