saucepan. Add the boiling broth to the soup kettle along with the
potatoes, carrots, porcini mushrooms, and reserved mushroom liquid. Return
to a boil and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Heat
remaining oil in a large skillet. Add the fresh mushrooms and salt and
saute over medium until mushroom liquid has evaporated, about 10 minutes.
Add mushrooms to the soup kettle and simmer for 30 minutes. Adjust
