Vegan Mushroom Gravy

Serves: 4-6

Prep Time: 20 minutes


We love our vegan mushroom gravy because in addition to being really tasty, it also has ZERO oil or animal products.

This recipe is so simple and is a saving grace to those of us looking for healthier plant-based alternatives to our favorite comfort food dishes.

Hooray! Your mashed potatoes are safe - gravy is still on the menu! You can add this to the list of things to be thankful for this year.

TIP: Add 1/2 cup of heavy coconut milk into this recipe to make it creamy.


2 cups, Crimini mushrooms, cleaned & sliced thin (brown Italian mushrooms)

2 shallots, chopped fine (1 small yellow onion also works)

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 TBSP, low-sodium soy sauce (we've substituted BRAGG's Liquid Aminos for soy sauce & it works great)

1 tsp, fresh rosemary, chopped fine (dried rosemary is just fine)

1 tsp, fresh thyme, chopped fine (dried thyme is just fine)

2-3 cups, vegetable stock

3 TBSP, cornstarch (plus 1/2 cup water)

sea salt & black pepper, to taste

*you'll probably want to use a wooden spoon for this recipe


1. Place a large sauce pan over high heat - get pan hot

2. Place shallots and garlic in pan, cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly w/ wooden spoon

3. Deglaze the pan by adding the soy sauce, continue to stir

4. Reduce heat to medium-high

5. Add the mushrooms, rosemary and thyme, stirring constantly for 1 minute

6. Add the vegetable stock

7. Bring to a simmer

8. Pour the cornstarch into a small bowl, add 1/2 cup of water, mix together until cornstarch dissolves into a slurry

9. Pour the cornstarch slurry into the pan, stir until well-combined

*the sauce will begin to thicken almost instantly

10. Cook for another 90 seconds - 2 minutes, stirring constantly

11. Reduce heat to low.

12. Allow to cool for a couple minutes, add salt & pepper to taste

Serve warm & enjoy!
