  5. Serve the mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy on top or on the side. Sprinkle with chives. Enjoy!

Mushroom Gravy

  1. Using some of the vegetable broth, sauté the onion and carrot in a large pot or skillet, until softened, about 8 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle the flour over the cooked vegetables and stir to coat.
  3. Add the remaining vegetable broth, sliced mushrooms, freeze dried garlic, and poultry seasoning. Bring to a boil, then immediately turn down the heat, partially cover and cook for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  4. If you want, remove some of the mushrooms before blending. Add the mushrooms to a food processor and puree until smooth. Transfer to a dish and add the reserved mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper.
