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.


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.


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.


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.


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