This is so easy, I’m not sure I would be willing to even call it a “recipe.” There are no exact measurements; it is all based on personal preference. What you need:

a large handful or two of your favorite mushrooms, slice (I love creminis, so I went with those)

one shallot, chopped

about a tablespoon of olive oil for sautéeing

One package of vegan mushroom soup (I used Imagine Portobello soup, and used roughly 8 of the 16 ounces)

about 1/2 a tablespoon of cornstarch or other preferred thickener (This dish is gluten-free using the soup mentioned and cornstarch)


Sautée your mushrooms and shallots in a little olive oil over low heat until softened (5-10 minutes). Add approximately 8 ounces of soup, and 1/2 tablespoon of cornstarch; stir to combine. Let simmer, stirring frequently, until sauce begins to thicken. If sauce is too thick, add more soup or a bit of water; if sauce is too thin, add more cornstarch. That’s it. You’ve made gravy!
