Turkey Pot Pie Soup

4 1/2 c. chicken broth
2 c. potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 onion, chopped
4 c. frozen mixed vegetables, not defrosted
3-4 c. cooked turkey, chopped
1 1/4 tsp. thyme
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 c. milk
3 Tbsp. cornstarch

In a large pot, add the chicken broth, potatoes and onions. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

Stir in frozen vegetables, breaking up the frozen pieces, if necessary. Add the turkey, thyme, salt and pepper. Bring back to a boil, reduce heat and cover. Simmer for 5 minutes.

In a separate small bowl, add cornstarch. Gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk, until well blended. Keep mixing until the cornstarch is completely dissolved.

Increase the soup heat to medium. Stir in milk/cornstarch mixture. Continue to cook, uncovered, for about 5 minutes, to thicken. Stir often. If it starts to boil, turn heat down to simmer.

Serve hot. With biscuits.
