Vegan Mushroom Gravy

vegan mushroom gravy

This vegan mushroom gravy is one of my favorite comfort foods, perfect on simple mashed potatoes or poured over grilled seitan, tofu, or tempeh. It’s flavorful, creamy, and filling. I originally wrote about it three years ago, presenting it as a perfect food to impress omnivores. Serve this at your holiday dinners or weekend feasts, omnivorous or otherwise.
