2 tbsp. water
1 tbsp. oil
1 cup onion (about 1 medium onion), chopped
1/4 lb. (2 cups) sliced mushrooms (I like cremini)

1/4 cup cricket flour (cricket powder)
1/8 tsp. each salt and ground black pepper, or to taste
Over medium heat, sauté chopped onion in oil and water until translucent. Add garlic and mushrooms. Cover, lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Uncover, add wine and cook 1-3 minutes more.
Purée onion-mushroom mixture in food processor or blender. Stir or blend in cricket flour, salt and pepper. Correct seasonings. Let sit an hour or two, or until ready to eat
