Green Valley Mushroom Soup

This Green Valley Spa recipe for Mushroom Soup can easily be made vegan by omitting the skim milk and replacing it with soy milk or veggie broth.  With either version, however, you’ll taste the mushrooms, and not the inside of a tin can.  This is not a thick soup, although sometimes we like to puree it for a silky version.  We find we need to season it to taste with fresh herbs (thyme is particularly good in the Spring), as this soup is quite basic.
