Portobello Gravy

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/portobello_gravy.html

From EatingWell:  Fall 2003, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

This rich, earthy gravy can be made with fresh shiitakes as well as portobellos. Leave the mushroom pieces in for a chunky-style sauce or strain them out for a velvety consistency.

2 cups chunky gravy or 1 cup smooth gravy, for 8 servings | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until they begin to release their juices, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add broth, tamari (or soy sauce), thyme and sage; simmer for 10 minutes. Mix cornstarch and water in a small bowl. Stir into the sauce and simmer, stirring often, until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes more. Season with pepper. If you prefer a smooth gravy, pass it through a fine sieve (discard mushrooms and onions). Serve hot.
