  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium heat and fry the onion with a pinch of salt for 20 mins, stirring occasionally, until golden and caramelised, adding a splash of water if it starts to catch.
  2. Stir in the mushrooms and cook for another 10 mins until golden. Add the thyme sprigs, then stir in the flour until combined. Pour in the stock, a little at a time, stirring constantly. Once all the stock has been added, simmer for 15-20 mins, stirring regularly, until thickened to your liking. Discard the thyme, add the soy sauce and season to taste.
