This sounds absolutely delicious! I got this in an e-mail from RealAge and this recipe link was in one of their newsletters. I am posting it here so I can find it easier, and to share with the 'Zaar community. I did not find anything else like it posted so far on 'Zaar. On the RealAge website, the Portobello Gravy recipe reads in the intro "This recipe is a tried-and-true favorite from EatingWell -- and it's low in saturated fat, low in cholesterol, and low in carbs, too.

I hope to try this, but if you try it out first, please let me know how it turns out. :) I copied and pasted this recipe as originally listed, (unless 'Zaar doesn't recognize something, I'll put what recipe calls for in parentheses).

- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 1⁄2 cups chopped cleaned portabella mushrooms or 1 1⁄2 cups shiitake mushrooms
- 2 1⁄4 cups vegetable broth
- 3 tablespoons tamari or 3 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
- 1⁄8 teaspoon crumbled dried sage
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons water
- fresh ground pepper
- Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until they begin to release their juices, about 10 minutes.
- Add broth, tamari (or soy sauce), thyme and sage; simmer for 10 minutes. Mix cornstarch and water in a small bowl. Stir into the sauce and simmer, stirring often, until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes more. Season with pepper. If you prefer a smooth gravy, pass it through a fine sieve (discard mushrooms and onions). Serve hot.
I really enjoyed this gravy. I sprayed with pam then roasted the onions and mushrooms to make them a bit more healthier by omitting the oil. I served this gravy over chicken and brown rice for a comforting meal.
I made this and had it with roasted potatoes and tomorrow will serve it with a pilaf. Thanks so much for a truly delicious recipe!
