While the soup is cooking, make the rue. In a pan melt 1 tbsp butter and add 1 tbsp flour and whisk in until bubbles form.  Add 1-cup milk and whisk in until bubbly and smooth. Do not let it clump. This should take no more than 3 minutes.

Add the rue to the mushroom soup and whisk in. Add chives and stir on low heat for 5 minutes. Soup is ready.

Serve hot with extra black pepper and a couple sage leaves for garnish.
