Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    * Mushrooms, fresh, 150 grams
    * Milk, 2%, 1 cup
    * Corn Starch, 0.020 cup (1 tsp)
    * Garlic powder, .5 grams (to taste)
    * Salt, .1 tsp (a pinch) - (to taste)
    * Parmesan Cheese, grated, 1 tbsp

Directions

Super simple to make and filling too.

This whole recipe hinges on getting the mushrooms to saute' and begin to brown a little. Deglazing the pan with the small amount of water makes a mushroom broth, then adding in the milk mixture makes it a tasty soup.

Process-

In a sauce pot spray the bottom with Pam butter flavor spray, Let the pan get hot, then put the mushrooms in and sauté' on high till golden on the sides. Salt lightly, add in 2 tbs water, let simmer and reduce down for a few minutes. When half of the water is evaporated - mix cornstarch, with the milk, garlic and extra salt (don't over do it). Then pour mixture into the mushrooms, still on high. Keep stirring until the soup thickens. ... Wa-La... Soup. Just pour in a bowl then top with the grated Parmesan Cheese.

Delicious!

    I loved this AS Is. The calorie count was excellent for a very filling Lunch. Sometimes you just want to enjoy a lot of something instead of a little something. This filled the bill for my needs yesterday. At 189 calories for the whole thing, I was full happy and satisfied with the taste. Thank You! - 7/6/10

  • This was good but originally too watery, so I had to add 2 TBSP light sour cream and a weeee bit more corn starch...maybe because I used 1% milk instead of 2%?? - 6/9/10
