Chickpea and Porcini Mushrooms Soup

Luciano Momini, the chef of Roccalbegna that in the Seventies, put on the table, the champions of the Inter of Mazzola and Facchetti (a sign that a good kitchen leads to good football), and from 1980 it carried the Saint Hole Lorenzo into the optimal restaurants of this province. It introduces a famous recipe in the great maremmane soup family : it has married the chickpea to the porcini mushroom.

You will say “the wait will give you what you wanted”. But the history of the traditional gastronomy has made small steps ahead. Chickpeas and porcini mushrooms together are a great combination, Luciano Momini gives us this wonderful thick soup, full of great flavour.

300g of boiled chickpeas
300g of fresh porcini mushrooms
1 litre of meat stock
2,5 decilitre of white wine
1 decilitre of olive oil
