There are plenty of reasons why you might not have a turkey on your Thanksgiving table this year, but our firm stance is that no turkey does not have to mean no gravy.

Whether you are vegan, vegetarian, flexitarian, or just not a big fan of turkey, gravy is still an unmissable piece of the Thanksgiving meal. After all, is it Thanksgiving without a mashed potato volcano? No.

In this quick video, we’ll show you how easy it is to make a Make-Ahead Vegetarian Gravy that is still rich and flavorful thanks to umami-rich mushrooms and soy sauce. The best part? You can make this gravy today to serve next week. Just pop it in the freezer and pull it out Thursday morning.
