GLUTEN-FREE CREAMY MUSHROOM GRAVY RECIPE
If you’re looking for an oh so easy gluten-free gravy recipe for potatoes or meats these holidays, this creamy mushroom gravy will add an extra dimension of flavor and get more vegetables into your diet in only five minutes! We used vegetable bouillon and a milk alternative to make a vegan version, but match your turkey with chicken or beef bouillon and add a splash of dry red wine or juices from your meats for even more flavor! Pair this with our popular smashed cauliflower or roasted root vegetable mash as a much light alternative to mashed potatoes. Subbing out gluten-free tamari and gluten-free oats will make this a gluten-free recipe. A Blendtec or Vitamix will quickly pulverize the whole mushrooms into a creamy gravy, but you can do it with a “regular” blender as well.

HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
Mushrooms are a great source of Vitamin D and have been proven to improve health, especially when replacing meat in a meal like this delicious vegetarian mushroom gravy recipe. Mushrooms aid in weight management and their long chain polysaccharides, particularly alpha and beta glucan molecules, are primarily responsible for the mushrooms’ beneficial effect on the immune system. Mushrooms come in many varieties that all have different benefits, so we recommend trying this mushroom gravy with a variety of mushrooms!
