Mashed Potatoes with Pine Nut and Rosemary Gravy

Ingredients

  • 6 Red Potatoes (steamed)
  • 4 Tablespoons Earth Balance
  • 1 1/4 Cup Vegetable Broth
  • 1 Tablespoon Mustard
  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Flour
  • 1 teaspoon fresh minced Garlic
  • 4 Tablespoons Nutritional Yeast
  • 4 Tablespoons Coconut Aminos (Or Bragg's Amino Acids or Soy Sauce)
  • 1 1/2 Cup additional Vegetable Broth
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh, finely chopped Rosemary
  • 2 Tablespoons Roasted Pine Nuts
  • 2 Cups chopped Mushrooms
  • 1/4 Cup fresh Water
  • Salt and Pepper

Instructions

As your potatoes are steaming, let's prepare the gravy.

In a small pot, combine the mushrooms with the water and finely chopped Rosemary. Bring it to a boil, then let the contents simmer.

Moving onto the rest of the gravy, in a skillet roast the oil and the garlic together until it becomes fragrant. Then add the flour, nutritional yeast, and coconut aminos and stir to form a smooth paste. Gradually whisk in the broth. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and add the contents of the mushroom pot to the skillet of gravy. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring constantly, for 8 to 10 minutes, or until thickened.

While the gravy is thickening, use a potato masher to mash the steamed potatoes. Mix in the Earth Balance, the vegetable broth and mustard. Salt and pepper to taste.

Serve the potatoes and gravy hot n steamy together!
