Just so you know, it's in the low 60's here in NY. And to an Arizona girl, that's COLD! All I want is to curl up in a blanket and eat soup. And cookies of course. I found this soup on a new blog that I love called Trainer Momma. She's got great exercise tips and healthy recipes. We loved this soup! It is flavorful and light. It warmed us right up!
Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup
1 tsp. olive oil
1/2 onion, diced
3 celery stalks, diced
4 large carrots, diced or 15 baby carrots, diced

1 cup cooked brown rice
1 can corn or 1 cup frozen corn
1 12oz can fat-free evaporated milk

Put olive oil large pot. Add onion, carrots and celery. Cook on medium heat until tender. Add garlic and stir for 1 minute. Add broth, chicken, rice, corn and seasonings. Cover and cook on medium heat for 20 minutes. Then add evaporated milk. Stir and cook on low until ready to serve.
*She added cornstarch to thicken soup, but I didn't have any and it turned out just fine.
