I made this to go into my veganized string bean casserole for thanksvegan day dinner, but it's so delicious, I'm going to save some to serve on its own.  I only used shitakes, plus my homemade boulion mix (All Season Blend for the Uncheese Cookbook), and it worked out lovely.

Thanks for the recipe!



Easy and quick to make, the thyme and black pepper flavors were nice. I used white mushrooms from the market, no idea what kind they were (though I was in a rush and skipped a few steps, I didn't sautee anything, just sort of mixed the mushrooms and onions in the vegetable chopper beforehand and then added them on the stovetop to the vegetable broth--next time I will make this properly, according to instructions) I think spinach might be good here, might put some in next time. Also wondering, when are you supposed to add the minced garlic, maybe during the sauteeing-onions part?


is the flour really important? or can i leave it out?

i think the flour is a could try making a cornstarch and water slurry type thing and adding look up the amounts for the substitution though.

the color is horrible but the taste is excellent. i didn't have all those fancy mushrooms, just used white button and some dehydrated black fungus.
