3. For those on a low sodium diet

 

1 Tsp of low-sodium chicken Herb Ox replaces a bouillon cube.

I'm also a believer in the "let the name tell you the main ingredient," and will swap out the milk with cream while reducing the cornstarch. That will make it a little more diabetic-friendly. If you use that, you can scale back the butter some.

I'll tinker with it and see how it turns out for me.

Everything else sounds on point, though, and it all looks a ton healthier than the stuff in the can. I always have these ingredients on hand. Even with the nuttiness of the current store wipeout.

Thanks!

5. you can also use flour

but you should cook it a little in the butter before adding milk

you can also use real cream and skip the starch

9. Here's another idea

Saute root vegetables until tender (onion, celery, leeks, carrots, etc.) and then hit them with an immersion blender after you add the liquid ingredients. This adds flavor while thickening your soup without processed starches and ups the fiber content.
