I'm not sure how appetizing this picture of mashed potatoes and gravy is, brown and white food does not photograph well. Anyway this is the mushroom gravy that I'll be serving on Thanksgiving. It's thick and savory and delicious. Several people asked for the recipe so here it is. I hope you enjoy it. And thank you to everyone for your well wishes, I'm feeling good again. The secret to Magical Soup is the large amount of red pepper flakes that help numb the throat and unstuff a stuffy head and of course drinking the whole batch yourself really forces fluids, so give it a try next time you or someone you love is under the weather.
1/4 c earth balance margarine
1/3 c flour
3 c vegetable broth
1 package of mushrooms

On a sheet pan roast the mushrooms with a light drizzle of olive oil at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes. Set aside.
