Cream of "something" soup recipe

I haven't even caught up on all my Christmas posts, but I must stop and share this with you.  I just found this recipe this morning at One Orange Giraffe.

Cream of "something" soup recipe
1 cup non-fat dried milk
3/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup bouillon (if you have cubes you have to smash them up)
  You can use whatever kind you like (ie, beef, veggie)
4 Tablespoons freeze dried minced onions (I used the minced onions from Sam's Club)
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried thyme (I couldn't find the thyme so I used dried parsley instead)
1 teaspoon pepper
(For the equivalent of one can of condensed cream soup, mix 1/3 cup dry mix with 1 1/4 cup water. Cook until thick)

Isn't it wonderful?  I always feel guilty about using cream soups because of all the sodium, etc.  This seems like a wonderful alternative.  I can't wait to try it.  Go check out all the other wonderful things at One Orange Giraffe.
