Joni's Reuben Soup!

This warm, comforting soup could be served with traditional corned beef, but I like the convenience of the turkey kielbasa.

2 tbsp canola oil
1 small onion chopped fine
1/4 tsp thyme
1tbsp caraway seeds
2 cups chicken broth
2 cups beef broth
7 oz chopped turkey kielbasa
1 peeled, grated carrot
1 cup sauerkraut, slightly drained (not rinsed)
1 tbsp corn starch
2tbsp water
4 wedges Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese
1/2 cup fat free evaporated milk

Heat oil in a heavy bottomed soup pot. Add onions, thyme and caraway seeds. Heat and stir for 2 minutes until onion soft and spices fragrant. Add the broth, kielbasa, carrot and sauerkraut and simmer for 30 minutes. Mix the corn starch and water and add to simmering soup. Stir for a minute to thicken. Break up the cheese and stir in until melted. Add the evaporated milk and heat through, but don't boil.
