Healthier Creamy Mushroom Soup

This easy creamy mushroom soup requires less than 10 ingredients and only about 30 minutes of your time to make. We swapped low-fat milk and blended half of the soup to provide you with the creamy texture of the typical cream of mushroom soup.

Enjoy this soup with a hearty piece of bread or as a small starter or side for your balanced dinner. Get your family involved! Have your children rinse off the mushrooms.
