Mushroom soup is quick and easy to make.Mushrooms are low calorie food usually eaten cooked or raw and as garnish to a meal. Dietary mushrooms are a good source of  vitamin B.This soup is one of our favorite meals.On vegetarian days we prefer having this soup.Its very lighter in side yet tasty.My elder one enjoys soup to the core.
