This 9-ingredient, one-pot, easy vegan mushroom gravy is creamy, savory, umami-rich, and super simple to prepare! 


– 3 ½ tablespoons  oil – ½ cup  diced onion – ¾ cup finely chopped button mushrooms  – 2 garlic cloves – 2 bay leaves – ½ teaspoon dried oregano – 3 ½ tablespoons all-purpose flour – 2 cups rich vegetable broth – ground pepper, to taste

In a saucepan over medium heat, heat the oil. Add the onions, mushrooms, garlic, bay leaves, and oregano. Saute onions for about 2 to 3 minutes or until they become translucent and tender. Remove the bay leaves.

Add the flour and mix to form a thick paste. Allow to cook, stirring, 1-2 minutes until golden. Add the vegetable broth, stir, and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Season ground pepper.

Use a whisk to gently mix the gravy until it thickens to your desired consistency, about 20 minutes. If you prefer a thinner gravy, mix in 1 to 2 tablespoons of water.
