Mushroom Gravy

My favorite gravy! Savory vegan mushroom gravy with onion, herbs, and hearty mushrooms. Absolutely delicious over a soft, fluffy bed of mashed potatoes!

Servings: 6


  • 1/2 small onion
  • 12 oz. mushrooms
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup white wine (or dry sherry)
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. flour (GF if desired)
  • 2 Tbsp. vegan butter (I use Earth Balance)


  • Finely dice the onion, and thinly slice the mushrooms.
  • In a skillet over medium heat, saute the onion for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add mushrooms, salt, and herbs. Saute for 8-10 minutes.
  • Add white wine and cook about 4 minutes, or until most of the liquid has evaporated.
  • Add broth, bring to a boil, and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together 2 Tbsp. flour with 3 Tbsp. water. Add to skillet and stir.
  • Return to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer 2-3 minutes until slightly thickened.
  • Turn off heat and stir in butter until melted. Salt to taste if desired.


Recipe yields enough gravy for about 4 lbs. potatoes.
To make easy mashed potatoes: peel, dice, and steam potatoes (gold potatoes are great) for about 10 minutes or until very soft. Then immediately transfer them to a bowl, add a little vegetable broth (or plain, unsweetened milk), Earth Balance butter, and a touch of salt. Mash, done, delicious!
For gluten-free, I use Bob's Red Mill GF All-Purpose Flour.
