When you add cornstarch it takes a bit to thicken the soup. Do you let the soup simmer or boil a bit after adding the cornstarch. The cornstarch needs to cook in order for it to thicken.

If it still does not work then I am not sure.

When all else fails grind up some minute Tapioca real fine and add to you soup. let come to a boil for 4-5 minutes this will thicken even the hardest soups to get thick. Trust me
I have been making 100drds of soups for 45 yrs.

Cook with passion or don't cook at all
