Last week as part of our Healthy Holidays series of recipes we told you about Glazed Sweet Potatoes and Mashed Butternut Casserole. Now this week we’re following that up with a new tasty substitute for Turkey Gravy: Vegan Mushroom Gravy!
3.5 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
1 cup chopped white onion
4 cloves chopped garlic
8 oz chopped mushrooms
1 tablespoon hopped rosemary
2 tablespoons chopped thyme
1/4 cup merlot
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium tamari
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons whole-wheat or spelt flour
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1. In a large skillet bring 1/2 cup broth to a simmer. Add onion and garlic. Cook for 4 minutes. Stir in mushrooms, thyme, rosemary and cook for 2 minutes, until mushrooms are tender. Add wine and cook for 1 minute. Stir constantly. Add remaining broth and bring to simmer.
2. In a small bowl, whisk tamari, flour, and yeast to form a thick paste. Add mix to a skillet, whisk constantly until paste dissolves. Bring to a boil and cook 1 minute. Stir constantly until done.
