Mushroom Gravy

Makes 4 servings

This gravy is delicious over Mashed Grains and Cauliflower, but enjoy it with any dish that can handle a scrumptious, healthy gravy.

12 ounces button, cremini, or your favorite mushrooms
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cups vegetable broth
1 – 2 tablespoon soy sauce (optional)
1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste

Clean and slice mushrooms, then sauté in water until soft.

Mix flour with 1 cup broth until smooth by shaking it in a small plastic container with a tight fitting lid.

Add remaining 1/2 cup broth, soy sauce (if using), Italian seasonings, and about 1/2 of the flour mixture to the mushrooms. Bring gravy to a simmer for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring often. Add the remaining flour mixture and continue heating and stirring until thickened. Add salt and black pepper to taste. Serve warm (and as soon as possible).

Stored in a covered container in the refrigerator, leftover Mushroom Gravy will keep for up to 3 days.
