Ingredients
  • 1 quart chicken broth
  • 1 pound assorted fresh mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped

  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Directions
  • In a 2-quart pot, bring chicken broth to a boil. Add mushrooms and onions and bring back to a simmer. Reduce heat to a slow simmer and cover for at least 1 hour.

  • In a separate large pot, melt the butter, then add the flour. Whisk until evenly incorporated. Continue to whisk while slowly adding half-and-half to the roux. Add bay leaf and stir constantly until the sauce is thickened and smooth. Remove the bay leaf and discard.
