9. Vegetarian Mushroom Gravy

If you've ever made vegetarian gravy, you know that the process is a bit different than making a gravy with meat-based drippings or fat. You've got to pack a lot of flavor into just a bit of sauce, and get it nice and thick to boot! Using mushrooms is one solution for adding flavor, as in this vegetarian gravy recipe. One reviewer had never made gravy before, yet found this recipe easy enough to follow, and one reviewer was able to find all the ingredients and try this recipe all the way from Beijing!
