2 teaspoons unsalted butter
1 shallot finely chopped (or substitute 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion)
1 garlic clove, minced
4 cups thinly sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 teaspoon dried sage
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1. Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet. Sauté the shallot until soft, about 2 minutes.

5. Add 2 tablespoons water; cook 1 minute. Stir in the flour; cook, stirring constantly until smooth, about 1 minute.
6. Stir in the milk; reduce the heat and simmer, stirring constantly, until thickened about 7 minutes.
7. Remove from the heat and stir in the sour cream.
8. Serve as a sauce over meat or over your favorite pasta.
