Cremini Gravy - Thug Kitchen

We don't need to sell y'all on gravy. This shit sells itself. Gravy is king of the holiday foods but great year-round on biscuits with some wilted greens. If you're lazy, just pour it on some toast. You can add gravy to just about anything and it's an upgrade. Pour some gravy on your resume. Pour it on your marriage. Try some gravy on your President. INSTANT UPGRADE. IT'S ALL GRAVY BABY.

3 tablespoons oil
1 shallot, diced*
½ cup of diced cremini mushrooms
Pinch of salt
3 tablespoons flour
¼ teaspoon of each, dried: thyme, rosemary, sage
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon braggs liquid aminos
1 ½ cups veggie broth

In a small saucepan, warm up the oil over a medium heat. Add the shallot and let that sauté until it looks kinda golden, about 3-5 minutes. Stir in the mushrooms and salt and keep sautéing until the mushrooms release a bunch of liquid and start to shrink down, about another 3 minutes.

Whisk in the flour and herbs until the whole mixture starts to look like chunks of playdough. Let it kinda brown a little like this, like 2 more minutes, then whisk in the black pepper and Braggs. It’s gonna look a little weird right now, don’t stress. Now SLOWLY whisk in the veggie broth, using just a bit at a time so that the sauce stays as smooth as you. *wink*

Once the broth is all added, keep stirring the sauce over a low heat until it starts to thicken up and ya know, look like gravy. This should take another 3 minutes. Once you get it to where you like it taste and see if it needs anything else. Serve right away, best over biscuits but dope on pretty much everything.

*No shallot? Use a ¼ cup of onion instead

For the rest of us who enjoy stuffing that WASN’T cooked in a bird’s ass, carb load up with our Sourdough Herb Stuffing. You’ll need your energy to flip the table when Nana starts in on the election.


Potato and Swiss Chard Gratin

Put down those mediocre mashed potatoes and pick up this superb side dish. Sure, a gratin is just a fancy sounding casserole but nobody will give a damn what the name is once they taste it.


Winter Vegetable Hominy Hash en Croute

Once a year people do this weird thing and get all fucking jazzed about eating a big ass bird that looks like a poor-man’s peacock. If turkey really tasted that good then everyone would be cooking those fuckers year round.
