The Best Vegan Mushroom Gravy

I think we can all agree when I say that gravy is the best part of a hearty meal. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been slathering my holiday meals with my moms gravy. Fast forward to being a vegan mom, I didn’t think I’d be able to create a flavourful gravy without making it traditionally. I was wrong! This mushroom gravy will have you eating it like it’s a soup LOL!

For this recipe you will need:

  • cremini mushrooms
  • garlic
  • all purpose flour
  • vegetable stock
  • maple syrup

1. Sauté the Mushrooms:

Start by heating a sauce pan over medium heat. Add the avocado oil and let it warm up. Toss in the minced garlic and mushrooms, sautéing them until they become golden and fragrant, about 5 minutes.

2. Creating the Roux:

Sprinkle the flour evenly over the sautéed mushroom mixture. Stir well to combine, creating a sort of mushroomy roux. This roux will help thicken the gravy

3. Liquid Love:

Pour in the vegetable broth stirring gently to combine. The mixture will start to thicken as it simmers. Add in maple syrup and simmer for about 5-7 minutes, or until your gravy reaches your desired thickness.
