  • 250 g clean, dry mushrooms sliced or chopped
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ tsp spice for vegetables
  • 1 tsp fresh parsley chopped
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1 cup milk (or more for a thinner sauce)


  • Use 1 tablespoon butter to fry mushrooms. Stir and fry until dry.
  • Add the rest of the butter. Add some flour.
  • Stir until the butter and flour form a soft paste.
  • Add some milk, alternating with flour and stir or whisk continually to avoid lumps.
  • When all the flour and milk is stirred in, you should have a smooth, thick sauce. Use more milk if you want it slightly thinner.
  • Sprinkle chopped parsley over the sauce once you have topped your meat or potato. Serve warm.
