Portobello Gravy

Do you know what time it is?


That’s right. It’s time for another delicious recipe. This time a mushroom and leek gravy made with baby Portobello mushrooms.


You can use this gravy on a protein like steak or chicken or if you’re vegan or vegetarian you can use over rice (I ate with Jasmine rice), mashed potatoes, pasta etc.  Or use for breakfast on a classic southern meal like biscuits and gravy.  Various ways you can eat and use this delicious gravy.


  • 1 cup of sliced baby Portobello mushrooms
  • 1 leek stalk cut (sliced lengthwise)
  • half of a medium onion sliced (optional)
  • 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable stock/broth
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoon flour
  • salt & pepper for taste


First rinse the mushrooms and leeks thoroughly. (I always rinse before and after I slice them).  Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat and add the mushrooms, leeks and onions.  Remove from pan once mushrooms have browned and leeks and onions have cooked down (about 5 minutes).


After you have removed the mushroom mixture and put in a bowl. Add the butter and flour in a pan and whisk until your flour roux is a light golden brown (1-2 min).  Whish in the stock and milk and stir until hot and thickened.  Add the mushrooms back to the pan.


Bring to a simmer and season with salt & pepper. I used mixed peppercorns and pink salt. YUM!


When gravy is desired consistency remove from heat.


I added some chopped parsley on top.



Delicious mushroom gravy!
