250ml white wine

100ml old brown sherry

In a large saucepan sauté the onions in the butter on low heat until translucent. Add the garlic and continue to cook for a few more minutes.

Add the mushrooms and cook until most of the liquid from the mushrooms has evaporated.

Increase the heat and add the tomato paste whilst stirring constantly until the paste has caramelized.

Add the alcohol and cook on medium heat uncovered until the wine has mostly evaporated.

Add the cream and cook for about 5 minutes.

Blend with a stick blender then add the milk and cook for 5 more minutes.

Season to taste with the soya sauce. As the soya is already salty remember do not add salt.
