Low Fat Cream of Mushroom Soup - Recipe

Yesterday when I ran to the store to pick up a few items I tossed in some mushrooms that were reduced for quick sale.
I love mushrooms; I've been eating them since I can remember.
Now I'm not sure what came over me but I thought why not make some low fat cream of mushroom soup.
My mom would whip up a batch every now and then but I had never tried to make any, so why not now?!
I made a batch today in about thirty minutes, ate it for lunch and it tasted great!
