"Cream of Mushroom" sans cream is my family favourite. Everyone knows my family loves my soups so here is the favourite one. This soup also takes very less time to prepare and very healthy and nutritious it is. Avoiding cream doesnt means that you cant use it. You may add cream in end but why adding calories. I used milk to substitute cream and its super delicious. Try you will love it.
