Vegan Mushroom Gravy

Serves: 4-6

Prep Time: 20 minutes

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

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

Hooray - 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

  • sea salt & black pepper, to taste


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

  2. Place shallots and garlic in pan, cook for 1 minute, stirring 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 half of the vegetable stock

  7. Bring to a simmer

  8. Pour the cornstarch into a small bowl, add remaining vegetable stock and mix together until cornstarch dissolves into a slurry

  9. Pour the remaining vegetable stock with cornstarch into the pan, stirring until well-combined

  10. *the sauce will begin to thicken almost instantly

  11. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly

  12. Reduce heat to low.

  13. Allow to cool for a couple minutes,

  14. Add salt & pepper to taste

Serve warm & enjoy!
