Mushroom Gravy

Ingredients

  • 1 cup shiitake mushrooms (or Portobello, white button, etc)
  • 2 Tablespoons oil or fat of your choice
  • 1 - 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 loose Tablespoon fresh rosemary
  • 1 loose Tablespoon fresh thyme
  • pinch sea salt & crushed black pepper
  • 3/4 cup almond milk (or coconut milk, or water)
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut aminos (or tamari)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Directions

Chop up mushrooms and sauté in oil over medium high heat for about 8 minutes.  Then add in garlic and herbs, sauté for another minute or two.  Toss all ingredients including almond milk and coconut aminos into a blender, and blend on high until creamy.  Return to the sauté pan to warm up before serving. Optional: Simply add more almond milk to turn it into a soup instead of a gravy. 

This gravy also makes an excellent “cream of mushroom soup” replacement in your green bean casseroles! If making a green bean casserole,  toss in some sliced mushrooms, and bake just as you would normally. Top it off with sliced almonds instead of fried onions for a healthy twist. This gravy also makes a great base for a cream of mushroom soup, just thin it out the right consistency, and top with sautéed mushrooms and fresh herbs.
