- 1/4 cup chopped onions (3/4 ounce)
- 1 clove garlic , minced

Pour the chicken broth into a saucepan and bring it to a simmer over low heat. Make sure to have a ladle nearby.

When the butter has melted, add the fresh mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes.
Add the chopped onions and garlic and cook for another 2 minutes.
