So what is Thanksgiving without gravy?  Normally I miss out on gravy cause it's usually made with all those turkey drippings.  Well, not this year!  This gravy is soooo yummy, so easy, so fast and so vegetarian!  I can't think of a better thing to make gravy out of than mushrooms so, here it is:

GravyMushroom Gravy

Serves 4 – 6

What you'll need:

1 small to medium onion, halved and sliced

1-2 cloves of garlic, minced

2 tbsp. butter (or earth balance to make it vegan)

1 medium portobello mushroom, chopped

4 oz. wild mushrooms, sliced (these could be crimini, shitake, oyster or whatever you like)

2 tbsp. flour

1 tbsp. cornstarch

1 1/2 cups vegetable broth

2 tbsp. soy sauce

salt to taste

What you'll do:

In a large frying pan, on medium low heat, melt the butter and add in the onions, portobello mushrooms and garlic.  Add a pinch of salt.  Saute for about 2 minutes.  Add the wild mushrooms and saute for another couple minutes.  Add the flour and mix until dissolved.  

Add in the vegetable broth and cornstarch.  Stir to dissolve all the cornstarch.  Let cook for another couple minutes and add the soy sauce.  Taste and season.
