Here's a recipe for mushroom gravy that I made for Xmas dinner and it turned out really well! My mum loved it and my meat-eating brother liked it too. I used butter but you can make it vegan by using vegan margarine instead.

Mushroom gravy

about 1 cup shiitake mushrooms, chopped
1 small shallot, minced. A bit of onion would be fine too.
1/4 cup butter (total)
2 cups vegetable broth
1.5 tbsp soy sauce
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp poultry seasoning

In a large skillet, melt 1 Tbsp butter and add shallot and mushrooms. Sauté for a few minutes over medium heat.

Meanwhile, melt the rest of the butter in another pan and add the flour. Stir constantly while cooking on medium to make roux.

In the mushroom pan, add vegetable broth and soy sauce. Stir in roux. Bring to a low boil then reduce heat to med-low.

Stir in poultry seasoning and simmer for 8-10 minutes, stirring often, until gravy becomes somewhat thickened - it will thicken a bit more as it cools.

Serve with lovely holiday dinner.
