Tofu with Golden mushroom gravy

I didn’t take any pictures but this is a recipe worth sharing.

First, saute mushrooms in olive oil and a little butter. I was making this recipe as I had a whole container of mushrooms that needed to be used. So, saute till brown and I like to do them till they’re just a little crispy. Set aside on a plate.  In the same pan, add a few tablespoons Nutritional yeast, and flour.  I just eyeball it. Then toast for a few minutes. Then add 1-2 cups hot water or veggie broth. I used hot potato water as I was cooking some potatoes for mashed potatoes as a side. So again I just eyeball it till it looks nice and thickened. Then add a splash of olive oil and a splash of sesame oil.  Next, add tamari or soy sauce about a few good glugs. A crushed clove of garlic and freshly grated pepper. Continue mixing till a nice gravy consistency.   I strained mine as the nutritional yeast I was using were flakes. So straining made it a beautiful golden color. I also mixed just a tad of corn starch in as I wanted it just a tiny bit thicker.

Next, add in the mushrooms and stir.

Then I sliced up the tofu and fried in just a tiny glug of olive oil.

Plate the tofu and then ladle the gravy on top.

I served this with mashed potatoes and corn I had frozen from the farmers market.

This is a winner recipe!!  Try it.  I hadn’t used nutritional yeast a lot before, but now I will add to other things as well.
