Groovy Mushroom Gravy


  • Avocado oil

  • 1 cup yellow onion, finely chopped

  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 3 cups crimini mushrooms, finely chopped

  • 3 Tbsp tamari or soy sauce

  • ½ cup nutritional yeast

  • 2 tsp freshly ground peppercorns


  1. Cooking: Heat a skillet over medium heat. Drizzle in some oil, about 2 Tbsp.  Add the onion and garlic and cook until translucent. Add the mushrooms and cook until tender.

  2. Blending: Put the mixture in a food processor or blender and add the nutritional yeast and peppercorns. Blend until it is the consistency of gravy, adding water as needed. Give it a taste test and add any tamari, nutritional yeast, or pepper as needed.

  3. Enjoy: as you would a regular gravy but without the meat sweats.
