Even vegetarians love the mashed potatoes part of Thanksgiving, but what are mashed potatoes without gravy? Through trial and error I've learned to make excellent mushroom gravy for my sister the vegetarian. It's so good that I usually put turkey gravy on the turkey and save my mashed potatoes for the mushroom gravy.
Plus, I have finally learned the secret to avoiding lumpy gravy, and lumpy sauces in general. Fat first!
I first started making mushroom gravy with canida
, but she's less vegetarian now, so she's only documented meaty gravy
. I decided to fix the lack of vegetarian instructable when my sister called me for tips last weekend.
