Instructions

  • Heat the oil or vegan butter over high-medium heat in a large sauce pan. Once hot, add the garlic, onion, and celery, and a good pinch of salt and cook until the onion is starting to turn golden. 6-9 mins

  • Then add in the mushrooms and another good pinch of salt and cook until the mushrooms are starting to sear on some edges. 4-8 mins

  • Then add in the bay leaves, thyme, sage, onion powder, black pepper, and the flour and mix in for a few seconds

  • Then add in the broth. Add 1 cup broth and mix so the flour doesn’t get lumpy, then slowly add the rest. Add potatoes, vegan worcestershire sauce, and salt and mix in. Cook partially covered for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked well.
