Wild Mushroom and Potato Soup is thick and luscious, like a hearty stew. Typical of Italian country cooking, this soup reflects the cook’s region as well as locality, adapting to whatever is convenient. The housewife has potatoes, onions, garlic, and bits of salumi. Hanging from a nail in the cantina, clusters of tomatoes wait to be added to the simmering pot. All that is needed are fresh mushrooms. Whether you hunt or purchase at the store, add a variety for optimum flavor.
Serve bowls of steaming soup as a main dish with some crusty bread or grilled bruschetta, and warm cooked greens on the side. Makes 10 cups/ 2.4 liters thick, chunky soup.
