We liked this dish but wanted a little more flavor out of it. I just realized a minute ago that, although I cut the recipe in half, I used the WHOLE amount of flour! And my mistake made for a really thick bechamel that needed quite a bit of thinning, so maybe that reduced the amount of flavor. Next time, I'll try adding a bit of garlic or other seasoning, because we loved the mushrooms and the leeks!

So simple yet so delicious, the only change I made was instead of chives to garnish I finely sliced the green part of a spring onion and I scaled back for 1 serve and struggled to get through it all, thank you TeresaS made for For Your Consideration tag game on FF&FF.
