In a pot, mix all the liquid ingredients with herbs, garlic, and spices. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 15 minutes to develop flavor. Strain into a clean pot, and place pot back on the stove. Add mushrooms and bring to a simmer; cook for 5 minutes.
Strain the mushrooms and place on a steel pan, season with salt and black pepper. Dress with Douglas fir oil and mugolio.
