1ltr boiling water

Salt and black pepper to taste

2-4 tablespoons of cream, depending on how you like it



Fry the diced onion in the butter or margarine for 5 minutes over a medium heat , until just beginning to colour and soften. Add the mushrooms and cook for a further 5 minutes, until they start to release their juice.

Sprinkle the flour over and give it a really good stir then add 1/4 of the water, stirring really well to ensure there are no lumps of flour. Add the remainder of the water with the stick cubes. Bring to the boil then turn the heat down to a simmer and simmer for 15 minutes, check the seasoning and add the cream.
