Traditional gravy is made with fat and juices from meat but mushroom gravy is a good alternative. Mushrooms have that nice umami flavor, making them a good substitute for turkey gravy.

or1/2 c. chopped onion
or1 tsp. dried thyme
or1/4 tsp. salt
or8 oz. oyster mushrooms, sliced
or1/4 c. dry sherry
or3 c. mushroom stock or vegetable broth

Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute 1 minute. Add thyme, salt, and mushrooms and saute about 8 minutes, or until mushrooms are browned. Add sherry and cook until liquid evaporates. Stir in broth. Bring to a boil and cook until gravy is reduced to about 2 cups (about 14 minutes).
