This makes such an amazing creamy mushroom sauce over mashed potatoes, pasta, rice, vegetables or even with my Zucchini Fritters

Great for dinner, meal prep, lunch and certainly as part of your Christmas dinner, Thanksgiving or holiday table.

Homemade and naturally vegan.

Variation and tips

Can I freeze this? Definitely wouldn’t recommend this as mushrooms can get really mushy when freezing.

How long will it stay fresh? This Mushroom Gravy will stay fresh for around 5 days in the fridge.

Red wine mushroom sauce: looking for more variety? Add 1/4 cup red wine and more corn starch for thickening.

Mushroom Gravy is poured over a bowl of steamed broccoli.

What can I use in place of the cornstarch that is low-carbohydrate?

Hi Monika! You can try almond flour, but I haven't tried that before, so I'm not sure about the result and quantifies. Let me know how it goes.
