Try this quick, easy, and creamy corn soup when you're short on time.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 onion (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic (minced)
  • 4 tablespoons flour (all purpose)
  • 3 cups non-fat milk
  • 2 teaspoons mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme (dried)
  • black pepper (to taste)
  • 2 cups corn kernels (frozen)
  • 4 tablespoons cheddar cheese, shredded reduced fat

Directions

1. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil and saute the onion and garlic until golden, about 2 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, place the flour, milk, mustard and seasonings in a small bowl and mix well.

3. Add the milk mixture to the skillet followed by the corn; mix well until the mixture comes to a boil and thickens, for about 3 minutes. Stir frequently to keep the mixture from burning.

4. Divide into four bowls and top each with 1 tablespoon of shredded cheese.
