Easy Creamy Mushroom Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Parsley

This recipe uses canned mushrooms to speed up the cooking time. Make sure the can is 16 oz DRY weight of mushroom pieces. If you can't find those large cans, just by small ones to equal 16 oz DRY weight.

01.11.09I need more stars for this! Parsley, you have the best soup recipes posted, I swear! :) Loved this one--so easy, creamy and delicious. I used fresh 'shrooms, chopped and sauteed with the onion, etc. and Fat Free Half/Half MMMMM. Made for the BellyWarmers event in Cooking Photos. UPDATE: Made one serving for lunch again last week. Yummy in the tummy!!
