  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup shallots sliced in rounds
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms (I used sliced crimini)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 2 cups veggie broth (see notes)
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch (mixed with 2 Tablespoons water to make a slurry)
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme leaves


  • Pour the olive oil into a large skillet and heat over medium heat.
  • Add the shallots and saute over medium low heat until beginning to caramelize.  
  • Add the mushrooms and stir, allowing them to start browning.
  • Sprinkle the salt over top and stir.
  • Add the red wine to the pan slowly, using your spoon to scrape up any brown bits and deglaze the plan.  Bring the red wine to a simmer.
  • Add the veggie broth and return to a simmer.
  • Pour the cornstarch slurry into the gravy and whisk to make sure it mixes in completely.
  • Add the thyme leaves (simply slide your fingers down the stem to release the leaves) to the gravy and stir.
  • Simmer until the gravy has reduced and slightly thickened.  Remove from heat, strain if desired, and serve!  


For the veggie broth: I like Better than Bouillon No Chicken and Imagine Foods No Chicken broth.
