    that doesn't call for turkey drippings? We are deep frying our turkey this year and I'm not having much luck finding a gravy recipe that doesn't require drippings.

      This mushroom gravy doesn't require drippings. Also if you google 'vegetarian gravy recipes' there are lots. Enjoy the fried turkey, yum!

      1 pound mixed fresh white and exotic mushrooms such as cremini, oyster, or shiitake (discard shiitake stems)
      4 large garlic cloves, minced
      2 tablespoons unsalted butter
      1 onion, chopped fine
      1 tablespoon soy sauce
      1/2 cup dry red wine
      1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
      1 tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in 1 1/2 cups cold water
      1/2 teaspoon sugar
      2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley leaves

      Slice mushrooms. In a 10-inch heavy non-stick skillet cook garlic in butter over moderately low heat, stirring, until pale golden. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened. Add mushrooms and soy sauce and saut© mixture over moderately high heat, stirring, until liquid mushrooms give off is evaporated and mushrooms begin to brown.

      Add wine and vinegar and boil until liquid is evaporated. Stir cornstarch mixture and add to skillet with sugar. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring, and simmer 2 minutes. Stir in parsley and season gravy with salt and pepper. Gravy may be made 1 day ahead and chilled, covered. When reheating gravy, add water if necessary to thin to desired consistency.

      Serve gravy spooned over baked or mashed potatoes and/or steak or chicken.

            I actually grew up on packaged gravy dressings, have never EVER enjoyed the ones created using meat drippings. I'm a vegetarian now, so couldn't eat REAL gravy even if I wanted to, but honestly, I've never thought it tasted very good! Try one of the pre-packaged gravy mixes, you'd be surpised how good they are! :)

              I agree - the powder packaged ones taste great
