Step 1

Bring vegetable stock to a boil. In a small bowl pour stock over mushrooms. Let soak for 20 minutes. Remove mushrooms from bowl, setting the stock aside for later. Mince or thinly slice the mushrooms.

In a medium saucepan melt the butter. Add the minced shallot and sauté for 5 minutes over medium heat until softened. Add the flour to the butter/shallot mixture stirring constantly. Cook for 2 minutes.

Gradually add 1 1/2 cups of the reserved vegetable stock(leaving mushroom sediment out), stirring well to incorporate after each addition. Cook over medium heat until thickened. Add the reserved mushrooms, soy sauce, cream, sherry & thyme to the gravy.

Cook for a few more minutes until heated through and thickened to desired consistency. Season to taste with salt & pepper. Pour over anything on your plate!
