It will be great like everything that you propose; but to achieve it with frozen mushrooms I see problematic. What variants should be taken in relation to the recipe above?… Hi Ada (you often break, I know)

Ada Parisi 19 November 2018 at 20:14

Hi John! Do not break at all! Of course, the recipe goes for fresh mushrooms, frozen ones I point them to reach out to those who can not find fresh mushrooms, does not know how to use them, and clean or can not, simply, permetterseli. Just use frozen mixed mushrooms, at least bring different flavors to the soup. And maybe quslche dry porcini, which intensifies the fragrances. But I know that you will use fresh ones. ADA
