Garnished mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy

Vegan Mushroom Gravy

The best thing about gravy, besides smothering it all over your plate, is how easy it is to make. Traditionally, thanksgiving gravy is made from the drippings of the turkey, but that’s not the tradition we’re continuing here. The recipe is literally just 6 ingredients, and made within 15 minutes!

Searing the Mushrooms

Let’s talk shrooms! For this recipe, you are going to want to slice the mushrooms thin. The thinner sliced the more quickly they will be able to caramelize. There’s two main ways to do so. Either slice the mushrooms using a sharp knife, or a use a mandolin.

After the mushrooms are sliced, you will want to preheat a pan with a bit of oil to high heat.

  1. I made this mushroom gravy to go with the rosemary potatoes for Thanksgiving, it was awesome! I didn’t have the garlic bullion, so I use the Better Than Bouillon mushroom base. It was smooth and had a great flavor!
