I’m like Pavlov’s dog. Except- instead of when a bell rings, I salivate at the mere mention of the word “gravy.” And with Thanksgiving coming, I’ve got gravy on the brain. Oh, and of course- family, gratefulness, turkey, stuffing, vacation from work, and all the other things that come with the holiday.
But mostly gravy.
Here is an AWESOME gravy recipe I made with Crispy Oven Roasted Chicken Thighs and mashed potatoes. (See? Promised the recipe was coming soon!) If you are either: a) looking to switch up your gravy beyond the traditional kind for Thanksgiving, or b) needing a yummy vegetarian/vegan gravy option for the holiday, look no further than this Easy Mushroom Gravy.
The thing I love about gravy is how versatile it is. You can make it out of a lot of different kinds of ingredients. People usually think of it as meat-based, and indeed- many of the tastiest and most traditional gravies are made with the drippings of roast meat (such as turkey on Thanksgiving!). But gravy can be vegetarian, and even vegan, and still very very tasty….
