  • 1 tablespoon water or olive oil (optional)
  • 1 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 ounces mushrooms sliced (about 1 cup loosely packed)
  • 1 medium Yukon golden potato cut into 1-inch chunks (4-6 ounces by weight)
  • 2 tablespoons tamari gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and saute the onion until it starts to soften, about 5 minutes.
  • Add in the garlic and mushrooms and stir for 1 or 2 minutes, just until the garlic is fragrant. Add in the potato, tamari, and water and bring the water to a boil.
  • Once boiling, lower the heat to a simmer and cover the pan. Cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 10 minutes. (The smaller you cut the potatoes, the faster they will cook.)
  • Once tender, carefully transfer the contents of the pan to a high-speed blender or food processor, and add in the salt and black pepper. Blend until smooth, using a towel to carefully cover the vent at the top of your machine so that the steam can escape. (And not blow the lid off your blender!)
  • Adjust any seasoning to taste and serve warm over your favorite veggies or turkey dinner. Any leftover gravy can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week in the fridge.


If you’d prefer to avoid potatoes, you could use cauliflower or parsnips as a substitute, though you might need to use a little more for thickness. You could also use more mushrooms instead, which would give you more of a mushroom flavor if that's what you like! This recipe is easily adaptable as long as you taste as you go.
