  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, (or white button mushrooms) sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons tapioca flour, (or 1 Tablespoon cornstarch or arrowroot powder)
  • 1 cup water


  • 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.


This gravy can be made in advance and reheated. It will last for up to 3 days refrigerated.
To freeze the gravy, let it cool to room temperature, place it in a glass container leaving a little space at the top, then add the lid and place it in the freezer. Don’t forget to let the frozen gravy thaw in the refrigerator before reheating it in a saucepan.
