A comforting, creamy Mushroom Soup is one of my favorite soups (after Tomato Soup of course).

This recipe is quick and convenient as it uses all pantry ingredients.Except maybe the mushrooms, but we buy mushrooms every week, so for us, it really is a pantry (fresh produce) stock ingredient.

I actually hate cooking during the Winter, and am always looking for recipes which are quick and easy.

A Big cooking affair is normally okay if I have the gas stove on and maybe both the ovens.

My house is really cold in Winter and really, really HOT during Summer ! I suppose Fall and Spring are the two most comfortable seasons for spending time in my kitchen.

This recipe for creamy Mushroom soup does not have any cream (heavy cream/double cream), but instead I am using Evaporated Milk.

Evaporated Milk has much less calories than cream, which makes it a lighter, yet still creamy, soup. I usually have three or four cans of Evaporated Milk in the pantry.

Favorite use for Evaporated Milk – soup and in coffee ! It is also a great alternative to use in desserts or whipped (has to be ice-cold for whipping) to serve as a dessert topping.

If you prefer less Mushrooms in your soup, simply half the quantity of Mushrooms. Or, to stretch the soup, double all the ingredients, except the Mushrooms (no need to but Mushrooms can be expensive).

The latter will result in a soup with less Mushrooms per serving, but more liquid. I only do this when I serve the soup before a main meal.

Serving as a main meal, the more mushrooms, the better and more filling too. Serve any crusty bread or toasted sandwiches with this soup. Croutons are delicious too !
