The Best Vegan Mushroom Gravy
I think we can all agree when I say that gravy is the best part of a hearty meal. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been slathering my holiday meals with my moms gravy. Fast forward to being a vegan mom, I didn’t think I’d be able to create a flavourful gravy without making it traditionally. I was wrong! This mushroom gravy will have you eating it like it’s a soup LOL!
For this recipe you will need:
- cremini mushrooms
- all purpose flour
- vegetable stock
- maple syrup
1. Sauté the Mushrooms:
Start by heating a sauce pan over medium heat. Add the avocado oil and let it warm up. Toss in the minced garlic and mushrooms, sautéing them until they become golden and fragrant, about 5 minutes.
2. Creating the Roux:
Sprinkle the flour evenly over the sautéed mushroom mixture. Stir well to combine, creating a sort of mushroomy roux. This roux will help thicken the gravy
3. Liquid Love:
Pour in the vegetable broth stirring gently to combine. The mixture will start to thicken as it simmers. Add in maple syrup and simmer for about 5-7 minutes, or until your gravy reaches your desired thickness.
4.Serve and Savor:
Pour this luscious, homemade mushroom gravy over your favorite vegan mashed potatoes, roasted veggies, or even a savory tofu dish. It’s perfect for the holidays, Sunday dinners, or whenever you need a little extra comfort on your plate.
