Thanksgiving Gone Mad?!

What better retaliation to the poultry fest that is Thanksgiving, than to serve a vegan twist on a dish traditionally sourced from meat byproducts? Huzzah! Also, it takes like half of the time.

Prep time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 15 minutes


2 red potatoes

Half a yellow onion

2 cups Whole Mushrooms

2 cups Vegetable Broth

Salt & Pepper



6-8 baby carrots

1 clove of garlic

Rinse and dice the potatoes and yellow onion (and carrots, garlic; if you choose to use them.) Halve the mushrooms.

In a large saucepan heated to medium, combine the freshly cut items with the vegetable broth, cover and simmer for approximately 10 minutes; just enough time to make everything soft and flavorful.

Pull the combination off the stove, salt, and pepper to taste, and pour into a blender.

Puree the mixture and voila you have some meat-free, wholesome gravy you can add to biscuits, mashed potatoes, or because nobody judges anybody during the Thanksgiving feast, anything.
