Quick and easy mushroom soup.

I remember when I made this recipe. It was during my first year at university and I had been craving soup all week.
It was then I decided to see if I could make a decent dish out of the abundance of mushrooms I had been left with.

Not only is this recipe cheap, it’s simple and takes 30 minutes or less.
