Recipe type: Topping, Sauce, Gravy
Cuisine: Thanksgiving, Holiday, Comfort food
Serves: 3 cups
  • • 2 yellow onions, diced
  • • 5 cups mushrooms (cremini, white, or wild), sliced
  • • 3 tbsp white wine
  • • 3 tbsp flour (gluten-free or whole wheat)
  • • 2 to 2½ cups water
  • • 2 tbsp tamari
  • • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • • 1 tsp sea salt (to taste)
  • • freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
  1. Heat a large stainless steel frying pan over medium heat (better than a non-stick pan for this recipe, so you get the nice browning of the onions)
  2. Dry-sauté the onions: When the pan is hot, add the onions. Let them simmer for a couple minutes, then add a splash of water to pull the caramelization off the pan.
  3. Sauté the onions until they are translucent and slightly browned, adding more splashes of water if they're sticking.
  4. Add the mushrooms. Simmer them until their water evaporates and they start to brown.
  5. Deglaze the pan with the white wine, stirring until combined.
  6. Then, add the flour. Stir until combined and simmer for 30 seconds.
  7. Slowly add 2 cups of the water. Stir constantly, then let it come to a simmer before adding the rest of the water.
  8. Let cook a few minutes to become a gravy-like consistency, then add the tamari and apple cider vinegar.
  9. Add salt and pepper to taste.
