Here in Australia we don't celebrate Thanksgiving day & to be honest I'm not really sure what its about!
But I thought I'd share a recipe with you all anyway!
I see so many pictures of 'roasts' everywhere as a way of celebrating Thanksgiving so I thought that gravy seems to perfectly compliment a roast! Not that I'm encouraging the consumption of any animals as roast!!!
I love this gravy over mashed potatoes... and well, anything really! :-)
10 button mushrooms
1/4 one small onion
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon cornflour
1 cup cold water
1/2 teaspoon sage
sprinkle of cracked black pepper
Chop the mushrooms and onion as small as you can, or put in a mini chopped so that all the hard work is done for you ;-)
Saute the mushrooms and onion in a pot until the mushrooms have decreased in size and the onion are brown. You may need to add a tablespoon of water to stop them from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
In a measuring jug combine the cornflour and the cold water. Mix until the cornflour has dissolved.
Pour the cornflour/water mixture into the pot, add the soysauce, sage & pepper (as much as desired). Stir well to combine & leave to simmer for 15 minutes until the sauce thickens.
Pour into a gravy boat for serving.
