Vellutata di funghi porcini, stile della nonna

This deliciously fragrant soup with its intense flavors was prepared by my nonna mostly on cold winter days. A real treat for the palate. Since porcini mushrooms have always been very expensive, she has used a little simple trick to bring the whole thing a little cheaper on the table. How, I tell you below in my tips 🙂

Porcini mushrooms are very expensive! If you want to prepare this dish cheaper, but still do not want to miss the typical taste, simply replace 3/4 of the porcini with fresh mushrooms. Chanterelles are also perfectly suitable as a combination.
