Creamy Cream of Mushroom Soup

To reduce the fat use low-fat evaporated milk, if you are not a garlic-lover then omit the garlic, I like to add it in, the equivelent amount of homemade chicken stock may be used in place of the canned, this recipe may easily be doubled :)

This is delicious! I did use the garlic and parmesan cheese! The garlic gives it so much wonderful flavor. I also used the full teaspoon of the black pepper - it really adds to the flavor as well. This is a keeper! Thanks for sharing.

Super yummy! I blended it with a hand blender and did not add the parmesan simply because I didn't have any. I made it with evap. is fantastic! Thank you for the recipe.
