Mushroom, Garlic and Cashew Soup

A lot of you like to curl up in the bed, and sip a warm soup while you binge watch a sitcom or a movie. I for once, fall into this category for sure and hence the dire need to experiment with interesting condiments of soups crops up in my kitchen very often. I personally love Mushrooms in any form, and a lot of you already know that. I whipped a very delicious (and easy) soup using Mushrooms last week and here is the recipe for you all.
