Makes 8 Servings

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (see note for oil-free option)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 8 ounces sliced cremini or baby bella mushrooms, roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch


  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and mushrooms and saute for 5 minutes until the mushrooms have reduced in size and the onions are soft. Add garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper and saute 1 additional minute until fragrant.

  2. Reduce the heat to medium and slowly pour in the vegetable broth and tamari and bring to a simmer.

  3. Use a ladle or measuring cup to transfer half of the gravy to a blender, about 1 1/2 cups. Add the cornstarch to the blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Transfer back to the skillet, stir to combine, and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer until thickened, about 3 minutes.

    OIL-FREE OPTION: Omit the oil and saute vegetables in 1/4 cup water or low-sodium vegetable broth in its place; add more liquid as needed.
