  • 20 oz baby bella mushrooms
  • 1 medium to large onion 
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, plus 1 tbsp for sautéing 
  • 1/3 cup gluten free flour (can sub all purpose flour if not gluten free) 
  • 3 1/2 cups vegetable broth

  • 1/2 tsp pepper

 


Instructions

  2. Saute in 1 tbsp of butter in large skillet on medium heat until soft and the baby bella mushrooms have released excess moisture. 
  3. Transfer sauteed onion, mushroom and excess juices to the Vitamix and blend until smooth. Set aside. 
  4. In the large skillet, add in 1/2 a cup of butter. Once melted, add in 1/3 cup of gluten free flour and whisk for a few minutes to create a roux. Add in spices. 
  5. Once roux is created, pour blended onion and mushrooms into the skillet with the roux.
  6. Whisk to fully incorporate and allow mixture to simmer for 10-15 minutes. 
  7. Finally add in soy sauce and vegetable broth to reach desired consistency. Stir and allow to simmer for 3-5 additional minutes.

Notes

  • Depending on the gluten free flour you use, it may have a couple of lumps. Lumps should dissipate once the gravy simmers. 
  • You can use all purpose flour if you are not gluten free!
