Mushroom Gravy

Mushroom Gravy

A gluten free and vegan Mushroom Gravy that is the perfect alternative to share at your Christmas roast this year.

Deep in colour and flavour it looks just like a beef gravy.

It is so simple to make and is absolutely packed full of flavour! Give it a try this Christmas.

It goes incredibly well poured over my Christmas Nut Roast or Rosemary Infused Roast Potatoes

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 large red onion finely chopped
  • 375 g chestnut mushrooms sliced
  • 3 sprigs rosemary
  • Large handful fresh thyme
  • 500 ml veg stock
  • 1 1/2 tbsp tamari
  • 2 tbsp corn flour
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • Salt & pepper


  • Finely dice the onion, slice the mushrooms and finely chop the herbs
  • Heat a small pot on a medium heat, add the olive oil, onion, garlic along with a pinch of salt and pepper and fry for a minute or so
  • Now add the mushrooms and fresh herbs and cook for a couple minutes until the mushrooms have softened down making sure to stir regularly
  • Add the stock, tamari and cacao powder and mix together
  • Add the flour and whisk in to stop any clumps
  • Reduce the heat to a simmer for roughly 5-10 minutes (to your desired consistency)
  • If you wish to have your gravy smooth then simply strain it


Tip: You can have the gravy with the bits or you can strain it to make it more like normal gravy if you wish (shown in the photo below). Both ways taste great!
Tip: If you strain it then KEEP the leftovers as these make as a great side or even for having with leftovers the next day!

This Mushroom Gravy goes amazingly well with my new Christmas Nut Roast

    1. Hi Clair,

      Thank you for the comment! It is something I am working towards for 2018… Right now I just have a free eBook and my blog recipes. It is probably best to write down the website address or bookmark it on your phone/PC so you can remember to come back or follow me via my Facebook or Instagram pages @healthylivingjames.

      Hope that helps,
