Now throw the mushrooms in a colander to drain excess liquid. Then throw them back into the pan, pour water and bring to a boil, if foam forms, remove it. Reduce the heat to medium and throw in the broth, pre-prepared roasted vegetables, salt and pepper to taste. Add the bay leaf and chopped greens.
