Port Wine Mushroom Gravy Recipe


  • 1 package (8 oz) cremini mushrooms
  • 1 shallot
  • 3 Tbsp brown rice flour
  • ¼ cup Port wine (or any other wine)
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp dried thyme


  • 1. Preheat a wide pan over high heat. No oil is needed. 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.
  • 2. Add brown rice flour and stir. Cook until flour is no longer white and absorbs much of the juices.
  • 3. Deglaze the pan with the Port wine. Scrape up any bits on the bottom of the pan. Add vegetable stock, garlic, thyme. Simmer, partially covered, at least 10 minutes.
  • 4. Gravy is ready when thick.
