Fresh Mushroom Soup

A trip to the local market last week saw me walk away from one stall with a kilo of mushrooms costing just over 2 leva, this equated to 1 UK pound :-) Too cheap for me to ignore. It wasn't till over lunch I realised just how many mushrooms were in a kilo ;-)
I decided on keeping some for the week ahead & promptly had some in an English breakfast minus sausages, with the gorgeous fungi for dinner.
1lb or so of Mushrooms, peeled & chopped
1 Onion
2 Cloves of Garlic, crushed & chopped
1 tsp Thyme
1-2 ltr Vegetable stock
Salt & pepper to taste
Low cal cooking spray
Spray a large stock pot with cooking spray, add onions & cook till transparent. Add the garlic, thyme & mushrooms. Cook for 10 minuets or so. Stir in the stock & cook on a simmer for 10-20 minuets. Blend, season & serve.
You can add milk before you blend to make it creamy.
