Mushroom gravy, thick, creamy, flavorful, and absolutely delicious. It’s super easy to prepare and to make it you only need 9 ingredients and 30 minutes!


  • 4 tbsp vegan butter or extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic, sliced
  • 1 pound mushrooms (450 g), sliced
  • 46 tbsp flour, gluten-free if needed
  • 4 cups vegetable stock (1 l)
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper


  1. Heat the vegan butter in a large skillet.
  2. Add the onion and garlic and cook over medium-high heat for about 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Then incorporate the mushrooms and cook for about 5 to 10 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. My mushrooms were ready in 7 minutes or so.
  4. Add the flour and cook over medium heat for 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently. 
  5. Slowly pour the stock into the skillet, stirring until incorporated.
  6. Add the spices (thyme, salt, and pepper), stir, and cook over medium-high heat until the mushroom gravy thickens.
  7. Serve immediately with vegan mashed potatoes, vegan meatloaf, and vegan turkey.
  8. Keep the leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge for 3-4 days or in the freezer for about 3-4 months. To reheat the gravy, just transfer it to a saucepan and cook over medium-low heat until it’s hot, whisking frequently. If your gravy is too thick, just add a little bit of liquid.


  • Some recipes call for cornstarch (or any other kind of starch), but I prefer to use flour, as it’s less processed and this gravy turns out spectacularly good this way.
  • If you don’t eat gluten, feel free to use any gluten-free flour you have on hand. I’ve made this recipe with brown rice flour and it works really well, but any other kind of gluten-free flour will do.
  • Feel free to add more or less vegetable stock depending on how thick you want your mushroom gravy to be.
  • Add any fresh or dried herbs or spices you want to.
  • Any type of oil will do.
  • Garlic and onion powder are also good options, especially if you want to save some time.
