Mushroom Gravy: A Very Mushroom Thanksgiving- Part 3

Thanksgiving is centered around the turkey. And the sides are…well, pushed the side. And this year, the sides are going to outshadow the main course. It’s my first thanksgiving being completely vegan. I’ve pretty much joined in on my brother’s plant-based Thanksgiving for the past 3 years, but this year feels different.

And this year, I’ve got a theme. I have been OBSESSED with everything mushroom lately, so I wanted to do a three part recipe series that featured my favorite mushroom-based Thanksgiving recipes.

Gravy is underrated. It’s an afterthought that made from the leftovers of all the good stuff that you made earlier. But I made a very fresh mushroom gravy that you are going to want to put on absolutely everything (so get ready, and make a lot of it)

Vegan Mushroom Gravy
Sometimes you want a little substance to your gravy. Instead of just using veggie broth and corn starch, add fresh mushrooms as well!

cooking mushroom gravy
Adding just water makes this recipe nut-free! It may look watery at first, but once you simmer and add corn starch, you’ll have a good texture and yummy flavor

Once cooked down, add water, Veggie Better Than Bullion, Nutritional yeast, Zatural Pink Himalayan Sea Salt and pepper.

Corn starch in vegan gravy
Corn starch is a vegan’s best friend when it comes to thickening recipes. I got this package, and then I refill at Winco!

Add corn starch, and let gravy simmer for 30 minutes.

I made my mashed potatoes with boiled potatoes and added the potato water to make it “creamy” (with seasonings like green onions, salt, pepper, and nutritional yeast).

Top with mushroom gravy.
