DIRECTIONS

  • Slice all the mushrooms and cut up slices into small pieces.
  • Chop onion.
  • On medium heat, melt butter (I prefer margarine), saute onion until transparent.
  • Add mushrooms, saute until soft.
  • Add in thyme, salt, pepper and cayenne (optional).
  • Add flour to mushroom mixture to create roue, stir in well, texture should be pasty but not gluey.
  • Add in chicken broth till covered but enough that it's not watery but still has a thickness to the broth, stir while pouring to give proper consistency.
  • Add in cream, and for a lighter version substitute with milk. Bring to a quick boil then reduce to simmer until thickened. Adjust seasoning to taste if necessary. Served great with a nice baguette for dunking! Enjoy!
  • Add in soya sauce, it nicely balances out the colour and flavour.
