With just six ingredients, this mushroom gravy is one recipe to keep on hand since it is so versatile. You can use any mushrooms that you like, but you’ll get the best flavour from using a mix. Try cremini, chanterelle, morel, porcini, shiitake, and white button in any combination. Each variety will bring its own strengths and flavours, but the end result will be an umami-infused gravy that can be poured over any grilled and roasted meats, chicken, or turkey as well as any preparation with potatoes. Make sure to pick mushrooms with firm, dry caps that are free of blemishes.
