Creamy Vegan Mushroom Sauce Recipe: Your Life Will Never Be the Same After One Bite of This Vegan Gravy Recipe

You probably think you have to give up decadent and creamy sauces when you go vegan. Nope, not true! There are many plant-based foods that can transform any sauce into something rich, creamy and decadent. One of those amazing foods being cashews. Here's how to make a magical vegan mushroom sauce, which I adapted from The Endless Meal's recipe. You can use this sauce for anything! I used it to make a delicious green bean casserole, but I am going to add it to pasta next.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 2 hours minimum to soak cashews
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours and 10 minutes


  • 1 cup cashews (soaked in water for a few hours or overnight)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds cremini or button mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves 
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Here’s how you make it:

  1. Cook mushrooms in the olive oil until brown in a skillet.
  2. Add cashews, garlic, salt, pepper, water and a scoop of the mushrooms to a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour the sauce into the pan with the rest of the mushrooms, bring to boil, then remove from heat.

I was skeptical when I heard Ashlee Smith was bringing a vegan green bean casserole for Easter dinner. But, it was amazing! One of the best green bean casseroles I've ever eaten. The mushroom flavor in this sauce is intense, and it is so CREAMY! I'm not a vegan, but I plan to make this sauce soon. No joke, it is good.
