Recipe!! Holiday Addition: Mashed Potatoes With Mushroom Gravy

Hello everyone! We are going to wrap up this holiday recipe series with a traditional mash potato and gravy recipe. The issue with most gravy recipes is that they are almost always made with a meat broth or stock. I have found that this recipe is the best vegan friendly one I have come up with.

The mushrooms give this recipe a “meaty” texture. I find that without adding some type of mushroom to it, the recipe is lacking flavor and texture.

With this recipe, I encourage you to play around with it. Try it with garlic or onions. Pretty much every gravy recipe is the same at its core. Butter, flour, stock/broth. With such a flexible recipe one can’t help but have a little bit of fun with it!

I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday season! If you try any of our recipes please show us on our social media, links and tag names are below! If you have any suggestions, loved this, hated this, or just want to say hello leave it in the comments below!

  5. Add mushrooms to butter
  6. Cook mushrooms until they are fork tender
