1 tablespoon olive oil
2 leeks -- thinly sliced
2 shallots -- chopped
1 clove garlic -- chopped

Soak porcini mushrooms in 1 cup warm water for 30 minutes. Drain and squeeze out excess liquid, reserving liquid. Chop porcini mushrooms.

Heat olive oil in a soup pot. Add leeks, garlic, and shallots and cook for 5 minutes until softened. Add wild mushrooms. Cook and stir until mushrooms begin to soften. Add beef stock and bring to a boil.
