  • 2 Tbsp. fat (pan drippings, butter, ghee, or olive oil)
  • 4 oz. mushrooms, minced (about 1 1/2 cups minced)
  • 2 Tbsp. minced shallot or onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1/8 tsp. dried sage
  • 1/8 tsp. dried rosemary


  1. In a medium saucepan or saute pan, melt fat over medium heat.
  2. Add minced mushrooms and onions. Cook 7-10 minutes over medium heat, stirring regularly, until mushrooms are browned and the onion is softened.
  3. Add garlic and sprinkle with flour, if using.* Cook 1 minute, until fragrant.
  4. Pour in broth, 1 Tbsp. tamari, salt, pepper, sage, and rosemary.
  5. Stir to combine and whisk or stir over medium-low heat until the gravy thickens. (This takes 5-10 minutes, depending on what thickener you use)
