Soften 1 finely diced onion in some butter and oil

After this add some flour (about 2 tble spoons) and cook off this roux for a minute or 2.

Add a small splash of White wine vinegar (let evaporate) and then a litre of vegetable stock.

Add salt and pepper and let this simmer for 30 mins.

As this simmers an oily skin will develope on the top - just spoon this off intermitently.

After 30 minutes it should be White-ish and skin  free.

Place into a liquidiser and blits until smooth and silky

Add an egg yolk and blitz for a further 5 seconds.

Serve immediately. Serve with a little parsley and some griddled toast triangles.
