Creamy Mushroom Gravy Recipe


Toxic Freedom Masterclass


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.

Blendtec or Vitamix will quickly pulverize the whole mushrooms into a creamy gravy, but you can do it with a “regular” blender as well.

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!

    Really great recipe, to get a smooth sauce rather than perhaps a gravy. Perhaps I would have needed more stock to make mine thinner, but it was an excellent base for a pasta dish I was making.

    The oats and cashew nuts work really well. I did tweak the flavours slightly for my taste, leaving out the celery salt , garlic powder and bouillon – instead adding half a stick of celery, 1x garlic bulb, 1/4 small red onion. Then seasoning with ground pepper to taste. Thank you, I’m new to vitamix and this helped me to whip up a fast but nutritious sauce for left over roast chicken and pasta.

    1. Love this Fiona! Thank you for the feedback and sharing your recipe tweaks it’s always helpful for people trying the recipe. That sounds like a delicious alternative use for it! Happy blending! ~Tarashaun

    1. That sounds like a great addition, Connie! Were you able to try it? You’ll have to let us know how it was!

      Happiest blending to you 😉

    This recipe is really horrible. I followed instructions to a T. Its just almost tastless. This should be advertised as a Stroganoff sauce or something NOT mushroom gravy. I’m going to have to boil a bunch of rice and make some raw sunflower seed based “meat balls” to add to that all. That way I won’t have to throw it out!! not serving this to my fam.

    1. Oh no! Did you make it with the red wine? I know when Leslie made it she said that really made a difference. We’ll have to tweak this recipe… sorry about that Natalie!
