Mushroom Soup

Having soups along with dinner is something we have started doing of late.It helps to decrease the amount of rotis we gobble down..;-).Hubby was not the one for home-made soups though,he liked only a few soups and preferred to have it from his favorite restaurant!So I had an uphill task ahead to convince him that I make good soups too..;-).He dislikes tomato soup,so that was out of the question.I did not have any vegetable stock with me so I had to make a soup from scratch.

I got a packet of button mushrooms recently,so decided that I am gonna make a soup out of mushrooms.I remembered an easy recipe of creamy mushroom soup from a magazine,which I had shared with my cousin S.She had made it then and said her folks loved it.So I brushed up my memory a bit and made the soup.Hubby did not like it…He LOVED it.Thank God!!

Button Mushrooms – 10,medium sized

Once it starts boiling,close with a lid and let it cool.
