Delicious and Easy Mushroom Gravy Recipe- Gluten Free, Vegan, and Paleo

I love a good mushroom gravy. It's good on just about everything, from rice to mashed potatoes to chicken to veggies to blintzes, you name it, it'll be good together.

The thing about gravy is everyone assumes that it needs to have animal products (usually meat drippings or broth) in it, and/or gluten. But this recipe for mushroom gravy eliminates all that, without lacking in flavor. It is both gluten free and vegan, and easily can be paleo as well.

Oh, and did I mention how easy it is to make?

Definitely make this.

  1. I made some gravy for beef stroganoff recently and didn't use any thickener at all because of a dietary restriction and what I had available. It turned out yummy! I used canned coconut milk and beef broth for the base.
