Serves 10

1 T of butter and 1/4 cup canola oil
1 white onion, medium dice

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup red wine
2 ½ lbs button mushrooms, washed
vegetable stock
1/3 cup of cream

Sweat onion, celery, garlic and thyme in butter and canola oil until soft. This should take about 20 minutes. Add flour, incorporate and cook out for 2 minutes. Add red wine and stir well. Add mushrooms and just enough stock to come up to the level of the mushrooms. Bring to a boil. Simmer and cook out for 1 hour until mushrooms are thoroughly cooked.
