“If you love mushrooms, this simple gravy recipe is one you'll want to serve with chicken, turkey, or mashed potatoes. Try oyster, shiitake, and/or crimini mushrooms for exotic taste and texture.”


    • 4 ounces shallots, peeled and coarsely chopped (about 1 cup)
    • 1½ cups sliced fresh exotic mushrooms or sliced fresh button mushrooms
    • 1 (14 ounce) can reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
    • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
    • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano or marjoram or ¼ teaspoon dried, crushed
    • Pinch of ground pepper


  • 1 Lightly coat an unheated medium saucepan with cooking spray. Add shallots; cook and stir over medium heat for about 6 minutes or until the shallots are tender and golden brown. Add mushrooms; cook for 4 minutes more. Stir together ½ cup of the broth and the flour; add to the saucepan. Add the remaining broth, the balsamic vinegar, and dried oregano (or marjoram), if using. Cook and stir until thick and bubbly; cook and stir for 1 minute more. Stir in fresh oregano (or marjoram), if using. Season with pepper.
