“When I first became vegan, I craved meat & potatoes and gravy, this craving is the inspiration for this recipe. The gravy has a rich lemon and thyme flavor that compliments the vegan griller (burger) patties. I use Morningstar; I find they have a texture similar to meatloaf after simmering. I use cremini mushroom because I enjoy the meaty woodsy flavor of them over button mushrooms, and they give the gravy a nice dark color. But, you can use the mushroom of your choice. I would serve this gravy with a side of mash potaotes, but you could also serve with yams.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a sauté pan, add the olive oil and the mushrooms first.
  2. Let the mushroom get color (remember color adds flavor), so do not stir them.
  3. After a few minutes, add the onions.
  4. When mushrooms & onions are brown add the flour and stir.
  5. Make sure to cook the flour a minute to get the raw flour taste out.
  6. Now, add the vegetable broth, and stir a minute, so there are not any clumps.
  7. Then add the garlic, salt and black pepper to taste, leaves from the thyme sprigs, bay leaf, and lemon juice.
  8. Turn your fire to low, add the grillers and cover.
  9. Let gravy and grillers simmer.
  10. After 10 minutes, add the parsley.
  11. Simmer a few more minutes until grillers are done.
