Serve this easy main-dish soup at gatherings by using individual round sourdough bread loaves as soup bowls. Carefully slice off the tops, hollow out the centers (leaving a 1/2-inch-thick shell), and use the tops as whimsical covers.
In a large saucepan cook and stir carrots and onion in hot margarine or butter for 2 minutes. Sprinkle flour over mixture; slowly stir in milk. Stir in corn, broth, undrained chicken, pimiento, and pepper. Bring mixture to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer for 3 minutes. Ladle into bowls. Serve with breadsticks, if desired. Makes 4 main-dish servings.
