Mushroom Soup is delicious bowl of soup with little cream . Like Cream of Mushroom Soup ,I have not added high fat milk , more cream or half & half here. I have used just 1/3 cup of cream to recreate a cream of mushroom soup with less calories without compromising on taste .

Browsed over internet for Mushroom Soup and finally decided on one with less cream . But was bit skeptical about following the same recipe as my palate may disapprove the taste .So tweaked the recipe to suit my taste accordingly. If you want to try original recipe of this soup ,you can check this Vegetarian Mushroom Soup from the blog Hurrythefoodup.

Though this soup is not much creamy and buttery like cream of mushroom soup but its equally good in taste. I personally don’t like creamy soups so wanted to try something subtle and low calorie soup for dinner. As I prepare soups mainly for my dinner, I want it to be light on stomach . So is the reason of not using high fat milk and cream in this soup. But believe me , you’ll never go back for high calorie cream of soup after tasting this bowl of warm soup.

There are many methods of doing cream of mushroom soup but here I have followed the basic method.  Made alterations with cooking, flavours and prepared this comforting soup. Instead of Corn Flour ,Whole Wheat flour is used here for thickening soup.

Try this quick soup recipe and for sure you’ll be loving this . Serve this less creamy Mushroom Soup as a first course of meal in dinner. And definitely you’ll be asked to serve more and more.
