This soup is was inspired by a mushroom soup I had at an upscale Indian restaurant here in London. I love mushrooms and I really liked how the soup was spiced rather than spicy. That is just how I like spices to be used as I am a heat wimp when it comes to spices. So, I went home and tried to recreate the recipe in my own kitchen and I think I got pretty close. This is low fat and vegan friendly as potatoes are used as the 'creamy' eliminate rather than dairy. Of course, if you are okay with dairy a nice dollop of sour cream drizzled over the top of this when serving would certainly be nice too.
