Cream of Mushroom Soup (Low cal version)

I like how mushroom and oats blend well together to create a very healthy soup when you are on the run, or just want to serve to your guests. It is less time consuming and best served warm. Mushroom has ample health benefits like it has good protein content, can be considered as low calorie food, high in minerals like iron, copper, sodium, potassium, phosphorus and calcium.
