SNOOPY1960, I added it. Do you know about how many and what size portions it makes? It is a good recipe very low in calories. I really like to make soups on the weekends to bring for lunch during the weeks. The canned soups are convinient, but very high in sodium. Plus I like any excuse to use my immersion blender.

1 (8 ounce) package fresh mushrooms, halved 1 teaspoon rosemary 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 onions, sliced 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme 1 cup fat free half and half 1 (14.5 ounce) can vegetable broth 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Preheat an oven to 400 degrees
Mix the mushrooms with minced clove garlic, rosemary, and salt together in a bowl. Drizzle the olive oil over the mushroom mixture, and toss to coat evenly; transfer to a baking sheet.
Roast the mushrooms until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
In a fry pan, saute with Pam the onions and the thyme for about 7 minutes or when onions are completely soft.
Combine the mushroom mixture and the onion mixture in a blender or food processor with about half of the fat free half and half blend on low until combined yet slightly chunky. Return the blended mixture to the stockpot.
Stir the remaining fat free half and half , the vegetable broth and black pepper.
Bring soup to a simmer, and cook until the flavors are thoroughly combined, at least 15 minutes.

I love love love love mushroom soup. My favorite kind, however is 36 grams of fat YIKES! Anybody have a way to tweak a mushroom soup to make it healthier? I know all the fat comes from the cream, which makes it so yummy! it's seriously my comfort food and I hate thinking I can't have it anymore or if I do I have to feel incredibly guilty!!!! Any ideas on what to use maybe instead of cream?
