Hearty mushrooms, shallots, and a subtle sweetness from Port wine come together in this satisfying vegan gravy.  This is the ultimate recipe for your comfort food collection.  No one will know it’s healthy or gluten-free…they’ll be too busy asking for more.  Serve it with the Ultimate Smashed Potatoes, Mushroom Lentil Loaf, or Parsnip Mash.


How it’s Done

To make the Gluten-Free Port Mushroom Gravy: Preheat a wide pan over high heat. No oil is needed.  While the pan pre-heats, slice the mushrooms and mince the shallot.  Add the mushrooms and shallots to the hot pan. Spread into a single layer, sprinkle with salt, and let brown. Cook until mushrooms and shallots are well browned, about 10 minutes.

Add the brown rice flour and stir. Cook until flour is no longer white and absorbs much of the juices, about 2 minutes.

Add the Port wine to the pan.  Use a wooden spoon to scrape up any bits on the bottom of the pan. This is called “deglazing”.  All of those little bits have loads of flavor so scrape up as much as you can.

Add the vegetable stock, garlic, thyme.  Simmer, partially covered, for 10 minutes

The gravy is ready when thick.  Keep hot until ready to serve

Serve it with the Ultimate Smashed Potatoes, Mushroom Lentil Loaf, or Parsnip Mash.

Yield: 3 cups

Serve this Mushroom Port Gravy over Smashed Potatoes, Herb Cauliflower Mash, or Parshnip Mash

Chef Katie’s Tips:

Mushroom Variety: You can use any variety of mushrooms, including porcini, oyster, and hen-of-the-woods. You can even mushroom stock instead of the vegetable stock to really bring home the mushroom flavor.

Make Ahead:  This can be made up to 3 days ahead of time.  The flavors will get even better the longer they sit.  Simply microwave or simmer to reheat before serving.

Port Wine and Substitutions:  Port Wine is a sweeter , fortified wine that comes from the northern region of Portugal.  You can use any red wine for this recipe – choose something less sweet if that suites your tastes better.

Celiac Concerns:  Double-check that the wine you use is certified gluten-free.
