  • 4 green onions thinly sliced
  • 5 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme minced
  • 10 oz 300g fresh mushrooms thinly sliced

  • 1/2 cup 120 ml heavy cream
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Melt the butter in a pot and sauté the green onions (leave some for garnish), garlic, and thyme for 1-2 minutes. Then, add the mushrooms and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the mushrooms soft. Add the flour and continue cooking for another minute, stirring constantly
