As we approach the holiday season and start to think of what is going to be on our holiday menus, it's important to think about all of our our friends and family. I absolutely love gravy poured across my Thanksgiving plate, not because the food is bad or because the turkey is dry, but when the gravy is good, it's great!
Here I will tell you how to make the best gravy at any dinner or holiday party, and it's not close! Best thing is this gravy is not made with turkey drippings or chicken stock! This is a recipe that your Vegan and Vegetarian friends will absolutely love! Oh yeah, and everyone else...they're choosing this gravy over whatever classic gravy is on the serving table. I'd bet the whole feast on it!
One last thing! It's way easier to make, and there is no need to wait until the turkey is done cooking to get started!
Better Than Turkey Gravy
You think your gravy recipe is good? It probably is, but I'm betting the entire holiday spread that this Vegan Truffle Mushroom Gravy is better than any gravy on the table!
I call this recipe "Better Than Turkey Gravy" because...well it's that simple, it's better than an awesome turkey gravy!
Not only does this recipe taste better, but it is simple to make. It takes less time, and there is no need to wait until the turkey comes out of the air fryer or oven so you can collect the drippings. BEST OF ALL, everyone can eat it, as it is a vegan and vegetarian friendly recipe.
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 onion, finely chopped
6 oz, mushrooms, finely chopped
1 tsp thyme, fresh and finely chopped
1 tsp rosemary, fresh and finely chopped
1 tsp sage, fresh and finely chopped
pepper, freshly ground
sea salt, freshly ground
3 tbsp, flour (I use organic, but a regular all-purpose is fine)
1 cup mushroom stock
1 cup vegetable stock
40 g Truffletopia Porcini and White Truffle Cream (half of 80 g jar)
1/2 tbsp Gravy Master browning sauce
In a medium to large sauce pan, heat olive oil just below medium heat.
Add onion and sauté (about 5 minutes).
Add mushrooms, thyme, rosemary, sage, salt and pepper (to taste). Cook for 2 minutes. (You can add more salt and pepper if needed later, so I wouldn't add too much now. A couple grinds should do it.)
Stir in flour evenly and cook for an extra minute.
Pour in your mushroom and vegetable stock. Whisk together and simmer (about 5 minutes).
Turn heat to your lowest heat setting and whisk in Gravy Master browning sauce.
Whisk in Truffletopia Porcini and White Truffle Cream. Let sit on lowest heat setting for a few minutes or until served.
- If gravy is too thick for your liking, you may add more stock, (either half mushroom and half vegetable, or whichever you'd prefer).
- When reheating, heat on stove on low heat until warm.
