- 250 ml (1 cup) cream, 15 %
- 60 g (4 tsp) butter
- 60 g (4 tsp) flour
- Salt and pepper
- Chopped parsley, to garnish
Chop the mushrooms finely with a knife.
In a heavy saucepan, melt butter, add onions and sauté for 2 minutes.
Add mushrooms and continue cooking for 2 minutes.
Stir in the flour and then slowly add the heated broth, stirring with a whisk. Add salt and pepper.
Simmer over low heat for 15 minutes.
