I had over two cups of sliced mushrooms in the fridge which needed to be used. When grocery shopping I sometimes buy a big package of sliced mushrooms and they have a limited shelf life. The package is usually fine for about a week in the fridge. This soup is like a vegetable chowder but does have fewer vegetables, it is pureed, it does not include any thickener such as flour and it also includes adding a cup of milk when the cooking is complete. As a meal, this soup would not be a complete meal for me as it is low in calories, carbs and protein. I will include adding some form of protein to my meal when having this soup as part of lunch or supper. The soup would also be good to have as a snack instead of fruit or an energy bar if you are looking for variety. I used baby potatoes in the ingredients but you could use two regular size potatoes. You could also add more potatoes than what I added. I didn't add carrots and used zucchini instead. I made the soup in an electric pressure cooker and set the timer for 14 minutes.
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
4 stalks of celery, chopped

2 plus cups of mushrooms, chopped
1 1/2 cups frozen niblets corn

Mrs. Dash no salt vegetable seasoning, to taste
In a large soup pot, add all of the ingredients, except the milk, and heat to a boiling point. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for about an hour. Turn the heat off and using an immersion blender, puree the soup. Add the milk. Serves 8.
