If you're looking for a Vegan Mushroom Gravy that is rich, creamy, and ultimately delicious, this is it. It is the perfect side to your Thanksgiving dinner or weekend roast. This gravy is so good that it will be loved by meat-eaters and veggies alike.
Today is an awesome day. A day filled with magic and wonder and power.
And the most awesome blender. Ever.
Today, we're giving away a Vitamix. For FREE.
This is the real deal. ♡
☝️ Did you see how creamy and luscious and totally delicious that Vegan Mushroom Gravy looks? That used to be a bunch of mushrooms and onions until the love of my kitchen life got a hold of it. Oh, the strong and powerful thing he is.
Yes, I'm personifying my Vitamix. Once you get yours, I know you'll understand. Then we can be “those people” together. Power in numbers, yo!
Speaking of things we can do together, let's celebrate Friendsgiving together. I'll roast the turkey … wait, this is a VEGAN mushroom gravy … I'll still roast the turkey, but I'll also make a nut loaf and serve this gravy smothered over the whole thing. Will you take care of dessert?
Awesome! I love planning dinner parties.
Have you been to a Friendsgiving dinner before? You know, like Thanksgiving but with friends instead (or as well as!) family. I've never been able to rein myself in when it comes to the guest list, so expect to see everyone here.
And you might have to eat on the bed. Wait, what? You'll just have to click the link and read the story to understand. AFTER you enter the giveaway, of course.
Here's what you need to know about this Vegan Mushroom Gravy
♡ I stole the recipe from a friend. Thank you, Gaile!
♡ This is the same gravy that gets smothered over fries and cheese curds at the end of every Sunday brunch. Don't tell me that your brunches don't span several meals and require extra food at the end?
♡ While this may be vegan, you definitely don't have to be vegan to love it. I think that meat-eaters are often the best judges when it comes to vegan food. Hear me out! If someone who is used to the richness and flavor bomb of a non-plant-based diet likes a vegan recipe, you know it's a winner. Makes sense, right?
♡ You don't have to wait for Friendsgiving/ Thanksgiving celebration to make this. It's a super easy recipe that you'll want to add to your everyday recipe list.
♡ To make this gravy super creamy, you really need a Vitamix. Don't have one? No problem! Scroll down and enter the giveaway, my friend.
