There’s nothing nicer when lashings of rich, tasty gravy are poured over your Christmas dinner and River Cottage has a vegan recipe full of hearty flavour.
Chestnut mushrooms form the back bone of this sauce along with carrot, onion, celery and herbs. And Hugh’s got a secret ingredient to give this gravy a twist. Delicious!

Hugh uses soy sauce and a sprinkling of flour for this gravy. To make this recipe Gluten Free, use gluten free versions of these ingredients.

debstarcrazy says:

Made this gravy last Christmas and it was so good I'm going to do it again this year, and make twice as much! Thanks Hugh x

Linda Feeney says:

Looks really straight forward 👍

Karen Haslam says:

Really nice thank you, and I’m not vegan – it will be served with our duck. My mistake was not to add enough water, but there is just about enough gravy for the 2 of us; good job there won’t be more of us on Christmas Day!

Needs a bit of red wine, Omami, marmite, brown sugar, dark chocolate square.

LycanB64 says:

I wonder if removing the herbs and using an immersion blender to blend the veggies would make it thicker like meat gravy…..

I was disappointed when it didn't start with, "Start with one medium sized vegan, skinned and boned. "

I'm thinking of doing this recipe for my Christmas dinner. Thank you.

CIRICE666 says:

I made this last year , it kept the meat eaters happy as well as the vegans . I crankupthe flavour by adding some dried porcinni mushrooms to the hot stock

Nat Le says:

Can you make it thicker ?

Whoops says:

Chefs that scower at making vegan dishes are not chefs at all. Once you go vegan, the menu opens up and the true test of chef-e-ness comes out. Nice recipe. Good work.
