Ingredients
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth (for lower sodium, use homemade)
  • 1 cup white onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 Tbl tomato paste
  • 8 ounces mushrooms such as porcini, cremini or shiitake, trimmed and chopped
  • 2 Tbl fresh thyme finely chopped
  • 1/2 Tbl fresh rosemary finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup red wine preferably something spicy like a Zen or Merlot (optional)
  • 1 Tbl tamari (reduced sodium)
  • 2 Tbl nutritional yeast
  • 2 Tbl cornstarch
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Add onion to a large skillet and sauté 3-4 minutes or until translucent. Add 1/4 cup of the broth to the pan to prevent onion from burning.
  2. Add mushrooms and cook for 10-12 minutes or until they release their liquid, and start to caramelize and become tender.
  3. Stir in garlic, rosemary, thyme and tomato paste and 2 cups of broth. Continue to cook for 1 minute until fragrant.
  4. Add wine and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  5. Stir in remaining 2 cups broth and bring to a simmer.
  6. In a small bowl, whisk together tamari, nutritional yeast and cornstarch to form a thick paste. Add mixture to the skillet, whisking constantly to make sure paste dissolves. Bring mixture to a boil and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly, until the gravy thickens.
