3 min read time Nov 21, 2020

Description

This vegan Thanksgiving recipe is not just a delicious immunity-booster enjoyed year-round, it’s a traditional holiday dish -- easy to make, super tasty and the ultimate in comfort food.

The mushroom gravy doesn’t use turkey fat drippings (unless you want to experiment with your own recipe), but instead has a variety of amazing mushrooms including our organic blend of 7 medicinal mushrooms. It’s loaded with flavor and makes for a nutritious and wholesome option for the holiday table (giving you many options to enjoy with more than just mashed potatoes).

What makes these mashed potatoes and gravy so delicious is the savory and rich flavor of the gravy, paired with the creamy and soft mashed potatoes - virtually guaranteed to be a winner!

The rich mushroom flavor of the gravy comes from the 7 Mushroom Blend which has Turkey Tail, Lion’s Mane, Cordyceps, Chaga, Shiitake, Maitake, and Red Reishi mushroom. Not only do they give the dish a savory flavor, but they are also great for the immune system and have powerful antioxidant benefits. The soft and creamy texture of the mashed potatoes comes from the Cashew Milk Powder which is a great addition to any creamy vegan recipe.

If you’re looking for some recipes to make ahead of time, you could do this with the mushroom gravy! Keep it in an airtight container for up to 2 days and simply reheat it before serving, if it is too thick, add some water or veggie stock to get it to the right consistency.
