Easy Vegan Mushroom Gravy comes together quickly with only a few ingredients. It’s gluten-free and oil-free.
I must admit I have never been a fan of gravy.
I never liked it growing up, which was fine since my mom never served it. In fact, I don’t recall her ever making mashed potatoes either.
However, now that I’m in charge of Thanksgiving and holiday dinners, I always include gravy on the menu since most people really love it.
But one thing I really love is mushrooms, so if I’m going to make gravy, it has to be this Easy Vegan Mushroom Gravy!
Mushrooms are incredibly healthy.
I started incorporating them more frequently into my regular diet when I learned about Dr Fuhrman’s “G-BOMBS”.
If something so delicious can help prevent cancer, I’m all in!
I like using cremini mushrooms, but you can use white button mushrooms if you prefer when making Easy Vegan Mushroom Gravy.
Since mushrooms have a high water content, you don’t need oil when sauteing them.
Basically all you do to make this gravy is saute the mushrooms with garlic and seasoning, then add a slur made from tapioca flour and water. Alternatively you can use cornstarch or arrowroot powder.
And since it’s healthy, you don’t have to feel guilty about adding a lot of gravy to your plate.
In addition, this is not a classic gravy where you make a roux; this is a short-cut gravy you can make very quickly. And you can make it ahead of time and reheat it the next day!
I like to serve it as part of a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner along side some of my favorites. These include mashed potatoes (of course), Lentil Meatloaf Muffins, White Wine Roasted Vegetables, and Fresh Cranberry Apple Relish.
Now let’s make Easy Vegan Mushroom Gravy!
Easy Vegan Mushroom Gravy (Gluten-Free & Oil-Free)
This simple gravy comes together in minutes with minimal ingredients. It's delicious with Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes!
In a small pot, saute the mushrooms for several minutes, stirring frequently, until they are reduced in volume and all the excess water is evaporated. If your mushrooms stick, add a splash of water to the pan.
Meanwhile, add the tapioca flour to the cup of water and stir well. Set aside.
Add the garlic to the mushrooms and saute for 30 seconds.
Add the thyme and salt and pepper, to taste.
Give the tapioca flour/water mixture a stir and slowly add it to the mushrooms. Stir until the gravy has thickened. If you prefer a thinner gravy, add a little more water and stir.
