    Fanstastic.....left out the mushrooms and used veggie bouillon. Vegetarians loved it and the rest of the guests thought it was better than the "regular" gravy - 11/26/10

    If you don't add the soy sauce, you will need to add a little salt for taste. I also like to add finely chopped parsley. I use basically the same recipe for non-vegetarian gravy by using low sodium/low fat beef or chicken broths. I also will add some ground sage if serving dressing. - 11/25/10

    I haven't made this yet, but I'll probably make my own stock (so easy it's crazy not to--keep bits of onion, carrot and celery you don't use when prepping meals, cover bits with water in pot and bring to boil, simmer 30 minutes, cool, strain and reserve liquid) and use Bragg's Aminos instead of soy. - 11/25/10
