How Do You Serve It?

The recipe works any time you need a basic brown gravy.

While many people traditionally use mushroom gravy over turkey, chicken, pork, or steak, I like to serve it with roasted veggies or spaghetti squash.

Growing up, one of my favorite weekend dinners was whenever my mom would make us mashed potatoes, green beans, and meatloaf or burger patties covered in thick homemade gravy. So after going vegetarian in high school, I began to replicate that meal by simply replacing the hamburgers with my Veggie Burger Recipe.

The vegetarian mushroom gravy is good for baked potatoes or sweet potatoes, biscuits and gravy, or over rice, quinoa, or toast. It’s also pretty great on its own – add chickpeas or black beans for a delicious high-protein and meatless main dish that meat eaters will love too.

Healthy Mushroom Gravy Ingredients

The recipe can be made with just 6 staple ingredients: onion, mushrooms, broth, garlic, salt, and your favorite thickener of choice.

Most flours work here, including spelt, white, or whole wheat. For gluten free gravy, try sorghum or rice flour. Or for keto gravy, coconut flour is also fine to use.

As for the type of mushrooms, it’s completely up to you. I’ll often use a mix of button mushrooms, shiitakes, portobello, oyster, maitake, cremini, porcini, baby bella, or whatever looks interesting (and isn’t crazy expensive!) at the grocery store. If you want to add some chopped carrots along with the mushrooms, feel free to do that too.

The gravy can be cooked in a slow cooker or crock pot or on the stove. I haven’t tried it in an instant pot but don’t see why that wouldn’t work as well. If you try it that way, be sure to report back with results.

    That recipe was on point! Having good vegetarian recipes like this definitely helps people trying to eat less meat or fish. I just polished off a bowl of mashed taters and topped it off with that mushroom gravy. Excellent!

  2. Tess says

    I had almost given up on finding a recipe for mushroom gravy that didn’t include Worcestershire sauce and/or heavy cream. This gravy was delicious and “fancy,” yet simple to make, and my son and I loved it. I diced up a small bit of leftover roast beef to add just as the gravy finished cooking and served it over wild rice and brown rice. This is definitely going on my recipe list!
