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. 

When you tell your guests you made your own gravy it always gets you bonus points!

Best of all it is so simple to make and is absolutely packed full of flavour.

Vegan Mushroom Gravy

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

It’s a recipe that will really impress your family/friends.

If you sieve out the hole mushrooms you get a beautifully smooth vegan gravy.

Or you can leave it with the whole mushrooms in for added texture.

  • 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!

    Perhaps this is personal preference but I think the cocoa powder doesn’t go well. Without it I think the sauce was good.

    Was the reason for it just to give it the colour?

    Would probably give a 5 without cocoa powder

    Great recipie, son thoroughly enjoyed them. He is allergic to wheat and eggs. Tried them myself and they were quite nice . Will be cooking this recipie again Will definitely use your website again so that we can enjoy meals together as a family instead of cooking separate dishes for the family.

    I love this gravy. It’s serious simple and the most delicious gravy ever. Even the meat eaters in my life love it.
    Best bit though, I strain the gravy, then add some creme fresh and blue cheese for an awesome pasta sauce. Happiness in a bowl. Thank you.

    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,
