With the upcoming holidays, vegetarians looking to enjoy the comforts of traditional meals can enjoy making this vegan gravy recipe by The Kitchn that is entirely meat-free, but still retains a delicious and savory flavor.

Gravy is a staple to most holiday meals making it difficult for vegans or vegetarians to enjoy because the sauce is often made from the residue of the roast pan. However this recipe creatively uses a variety of mushrooms and red wine as a base to replicate that meaty flavor without the use of animal by products. The sauce contains red wine, several types of mushrooms, onion, oil, bay leaves, mushroom broth, spices and flour to thicken. The mixture is also pureed to replicate the quintessential brown hue of the sauce.
