Port Wine Mushroom Gravy Recipe

What You'll Need


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


How to Make It


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.

Cooking Tips

You can use any variety of mushrooms, including porcini, oyster, and hen-of-the-woods.

This can be made up to 3 days ahead of time and simply microwave or simmer before serving.
