Guiltless Mushroom Gravy

Submitted by randilicious
Serves 6

Ingredients

3 tbsp canola oil 2 c. mushrooms, sliced thin
1 onion, finely diced (about 1½ c.) 4 cloves garlic, minced
1 c. red wine 4 tbsp whole wheat flour
10 oz. chicken broth (1 can) ½ c. water
salt & pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Ben Seibel Iroquois Gravy Boat by Patrick Q on FlickrCoat bottom of saucepan with canola oil.  Mix in mushrooms & saute.
  2. Add onions, garlic, & red wine.  Mix well until wine boils off.  The onions should cook off until they are tiny.  All that should be left are the mushrooms, tiny bits of onion & garlic, & just a bit of the oil.
  3. Mix in the flour.  Stir well & often until it becomes a paste-like mixture.
  4. Add chicken broth.  Stir often to keep mushrooms from burning onto the surface.  As the broth boils, the gravy should thicken.
  5. Add water to the desired consistency.
  6. Add salt & pepper to taste.

Chef’s Note: I use baby bella mushrooms. I like mine thick, so I only use ½ cup of water in step 5.
