I made this a few weeks ago to go with a veggie loaf - and I could have eaten the entire batch myself....so good! Took it to a family dinner, where there was one gravy for the meat eaters, and this one for the non. My SIL referred to it as the "lumpy" one. Well, yes, it's a bit chunky with all the delicious mushrooms. It made enough to freeze a cup or so for future use. If you're preparing in advance it does get quite thick, so just thin out with some wine or more stock when the time comes to use it. This is from 'Vegan a Go Go'.
- Over medium-high heat saute the mushrooms in the margarine until soft.
- Add the flour, nutritional yeast, pepper and tamari/braggs. Stir constantly until thickened.
- Leave as is, or use an immersion blender to make it smooth (or a blender blender of course).
This was absolutely smashing! So thick, creamy and comforting with a wonderful mushroom flavour! My sis and me served it with mashed taters and it was the perfect comfort food. YUM! Sooo good! I didnt use the nutritional yeast and in place of the braggs (which I couldnt find) I used veggie broth. This was so yummy, Ive added it to my regular rotation. Thank you so much for sharing this true winner with, magpie!

Rootin, tootin, fabulous gravy. This is now my go-to recipe for gravy. Easy, tasty and thick. . .love it. I am going to use it atop some garlic mashed potatoes and a veggie loaf tonight. THANKS for a keeper! UPDATE: This is family favorite and I make it often. I have even made it with dehydrated morel mushrooms which is a real treat! We love it on mashed potatoes, on veggie burgers, even over noodles! Love this stuff. My neighbor who only understands meat and potatoes frequently requests I make this for her which she likes to put over baked chicken (yes, meat LOL).
This is a very delicious and easy to make gravy. I loved it and so did my hubby, we ate it with baked tofu, mashed potatoes and green beans, and my hubby hates mushrooms! This is a keeper, thanks for posting! Made for ZWT8.
