Truly the best mushroom gravy recipe! It’s super easy, vegan-adaptable & gluten-free adaptable, and soooooooooo full of flavor, depth and complexity with the addition of miso! Use this on mashed potatoes, turkey or stuffing!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups veggie broth or stock (or feel free to use beef, mushroom or chicken)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon miso paste (see notes for substitution)
  • —–
  • 3 tablespoons butter (or vegan butter!)
  • 12 ounces mushrooms, sliced (creminis, shiitakes, portobellos, morels) about 3-4 cups
  • 1 shallot, finely diced (or half an onion)
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves (optional, sub 1 teaspoon dried)
  • 3 tablespoons flour or GF flour
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Place broth and water in a small pot and bring to a simmer, then stir in miso until disolved.

At the same time, heat butter ( or oil)  in a large skillet and saute mushrooms and shallot over med-high heat. Saute 7-8 minutes, lowering heat if necessary, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms have fully released their liquid and all this liquid has cooked off.

Lower heat to medium, add garlic and thyme, saute 2 minutes.

Sprinkle the flour over top and stir to combine, cooking and stirring the flour 2 minutes, letting it brown a bit. Here is where the flavor is!

Add 1/2 of the hot broth, whisking and scraping all those flavorful browned-bits. When incorporated, add the remaining broth, stirring to combine Simmer gently on med-low until reduced and thickened, about 5 minutes.  Taste for salt, adding some if needed along with pepper.

Notes

If using bouillon cubes (to make broth) go lighter than it says on the package. For example, instead of two cubes for two cups water, use 1 cube for 2 cups water.

If wanting to leave the miso out, replace it and the water with another cup of broth. Or use a tablespoon of soy sauce, or GF alternatives like Braggs or Coconut Aminos
