Not only is this gravy plant-based, but we take the Naked up a notch by the absence of margarine and flour, which are used in many vegan gravy recipes. Simmering this gravy slowly until it reduces volume is the trick to making it the perfect consistency for complementing your holiday dishes.


Holiday Gravy

  • Yield: About 2 cups 1x


  • 1 cup organic mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup organic red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 organic garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup low-sodium vegetable broth, divided
  • 2 Tbsp. low-sodium tamari
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh oregano
  • 2 fresh bay leaves
  • Pepper to taste


  1. Slice a couple of the mushrooms in thin slices and set apart. In a food processor, chop the rest of the mushrooms, onion, and garlic together. 
  2. In a large saucepan, sauté the mushroom mixture with ¼ cup of the vegetable broth for about 12 minutes.
  3. Add the rest of the broth, the sliced mushrooms, the tamari, oregano, pepper, and bay leaves, and simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to low and simmer to reduce the mixture until gravy reaches your desired thickness. Remove the bay leaves and serve immediately.
