CREAM OF MUSHROOM SOUP 

Mushrooms are consumed for their nutritional value and they are occasionally consumed for their supposed medicinal value.

One thing I love about mushrooms is that they take a really short time cooking and also their unique taste. I love the creamy texture and exquisite taste of the soup. 

I am so enthusiastic about this recipe. Hope you love it. I got this recipe from my grandmother.
