16 Oct King Oyster Mushroom Gravy
As this king oyster mushroom gravy cooked the delicious aromas wafted through the house. I was salivating in anticipation to try it. Rightly so, as this gravy was a huge hit at Thanksgiving.
The key ingredient in this recipe is the king oyster mushroom, also known as the king trumpet mushroom. King oyster mushrooms help to reduce inflammation in the body, lower cholesterol, reduce risk of cancer, and increase brain function. The mushroom itself has a very light flavour and takes on the other flavours in the dish very well. It provides a satisfying and creamy texture to this recipe.
It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3 to make this gravy.
Sauté. Simmer. Blend.

- 1 shallot, minced
- 5 springs fresh thyme, plucked
- 2 cups vegetable stock
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose gluten-free flour
- Pink Himalayan salt and/or pepper, to taste
- In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Cook the mushrooms and shallot, until browned, about 8 to 10 minutes.
- Add the thyme and cook for another 30 seconds. Add the vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Then lower the heat and let simmer for 5 minutes.
