All Aboard the Gravy Boat!
When you think of a Thanksgiving meal, what’s the first meal that you think of? There’s a variety of main dishes, side dishes, and desserts to choose from but nothing can compare to a delicious, bowl of gravy! It can be used as a topping for almost any dish and reused as leftovers. This recipe, in particular, it’s a vegan mushroom gravy that uses onions, mushrooms, and a variety of herbs seasoned with soy sauce and vegan Worcestershire sauce.
This quick and simple dish simply requires a sauce-pot and some patience for the sautéing and stirring process. Then before you know it, voila! You have a savoury sauce, perfect for Thanksgiving dinner.
Wondering what you can pair gravy with after and during Thanksgiving? Here are a few options!
- Heat the gravy and pour it over poutine!
- Add it in some homemade shepherd’s pie or chick’n pot pie, might we recommend ours as a second?
- Mix it into soups and stews; the more flavourful, the better.
- Top your sandwiches with gravy because why not?
