1 1/2 tsp. vegetable oil
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 tsp. dried tarragon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg, freshly grated
1 lb. mushrooms, trimmed and sliced
1/2 cup all purpose flour
3 1/2 cups nonfat beef broth
1 cup reduced fat sour cream
1 cup 1% skim milk
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
pinch of cayenne or dash of Tabasco sauce
Taragon is a sweet herb with hints of licorice flavor coupled with the pungency of thyme. I would use a touch of anise with the thyme, or maybe some fennel . You could also use chinese 5-spice powder with teh thyme to mimick the tarragon.
