Chef Lauren's Tips


Using red or white wine changes the complexity of this gravy, red wine would make it more like a demi-glaze and white wine more like a brown or mushroom gravy.

Ingredients
 1 cup Sliced cremini mushroomsCreminian is an immature portobello mushroom, eaten before the cap has opened.
 ½ cup minced yellow onionsBest when minced in a Food processor
 1 tbsp Minced fresh thymeBest when minced in a Food processor
 1 cup White wineA Crisp White Wine (Such as Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc & Unoaked Chardonnay) work best
 ¼ cup Gluten free or all purpose flour
 ¼ cup Vegan butter
 1 cup Vegtable broth
 1 tsp Poultry seasonings
 Salt and pepper to taste
Directions
1

In a wide stock pot or deep sauté pan, on medium heat, add vegan butter and sauté mushrooms and thyme for 5-10 minutes stirring occasionally while seasoning with salt and pepper.

2

Once mushrooms start to darken in color add onions and sauté for another 5 minutes stirring occasionally. Add flour to onion/mushroom mixture and stir for 1-2 minutes until you smell a nutty smell from the flour. This is your roux being toasted and will help keep the gravy thick.

3

Add your wine, broth, poultry seasonings and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 10 minutes on medium/low heat. Next, Add the nutritional yeast, this adds a creamy texture and also helps the gravy get thicker.

4

If you would like a thicker, smoother gravy, pulse it a few times with an immersion hand blender or when cool in a stand blender.

5

Taste for seasonings and enjoy. Can be stored in the fridge for 3-4 days and frozen easily.
