This recipe is the second in a line up of Thanksgiving recipes that I have coming at you over the next week or so. It’s one of my favorite’s of the bunch and it fits perfectly with the blog post from last week for whipped parsnips with fresh herbs – because if a delicious and flavorful mushroom gravy belongs anywhere it’s on top of a pile of whipped parsnips or mashed potatoes 😍

This dish, like a lot of the comfort food recipes I share here on NK, reminds me so much of my grandma. She was a 4’11” queen of the kitchen – particularly when it came to comfort foods like a delicious gravy, a tender roast, or a warm and filling stew.

She was my first teacher in the kitchen – patient, kind and oh-so-good at making food taste freaking delicious.

I’ve taken her mastery of depth of flavor and used it to create a recipe for a healthier, gluten free, vegan, paleo and whole30 approved mushroom gravy that will make you feel all the comfort food feels.

It’s here! It’s HERE! The start of epic holiday spreads and all the comfort food dinners while we’re tucked safely inside our homes cozy and WARM. 

I love this season so much for many reasons, but let’s be honest, mostly because of the food 😝

Once November hits it’s game over for me and comfort food. It’s like this gravitational pull that starts between my kitchen and all things warm and delicious and filling. 

And Thanksgiving always brings that truth to life in the most real way. The mashed potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, etc etc etc, just steal the comfort food spotlight!

And since it’s been dropping into the 30’s this week in Seattle, we might as well embrace those vibes by relishing in the warmth of our kitchens and eating all of the coziest foods.
