Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir 3 minutes or until just begins to soften. Add mushrooms; cook and stir 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add 1 teaspoon garlic; cook and stir 1 minute. Add carrots, celery, and peas; cook and stir 5 minutes or until crisp-tender.
Sprinkle flour over vegetables; cook and stir 2 minutes. Add broth, salt, and dried rosemary. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 30 to 35 minutes or until thickened.
Meanwhile, place potatoes in medium saucepan. Add enough water to cover potatoes. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender; drain.
Beat potatoes, milk, margarine, remaining 1/4 teaspoon garlic, and pepper in medium bowl with electric mixer at low speed until smooth.
