12 oz. fresh mushrooms -- sliced
2 cups chopped onions
4 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. flour
1 cup milk
1 to 2 tsp. dill weed
1 Tbsp. Hungarian paprika
1 Tbsp. tamari

Saute onions in 2 tablespoons of butter. Salt lightly. A few minutes later, add mushrooms, 1 teaspoon dill, 1/2 cup stock (or water), tamari and paprika. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

Melt remaining butter in a large saucepan. Whisk in flour and cook; whisking a few minutes. Add milk. Cook, stirring frequently until thick, over low heat about 10 minutes. Stir in mushroom mixture and remaining stock (or water). Cover and simmer 10 to 15 minutes. Just before serving, add salt, pepper, lemon juice, sour cream and, if desired, extra dill. Serve garnished with parsley.
