Method

  1. Heat a splash of oil in a large frying pan. Slice, then fry the mushrooms for 10 minutes or until golden and all the liquid has evaporated. Crush and stir in the garlic. Add the wine, then simmer for 2 minutes. Stir in the flour, then cook for another 2 minutes. Stir in the cream and water, little by little, until thick and smooth.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a splash of oil in another frying pan. Slice, then fry the onion for 7 minutes or until softened.
