Instructions
  1. It is not necessary, but If you are using the onions and mushrooms, saute them until tender using the same saucepan for cooking the gravy, then set aside and continue with the gravy directions.
  2. Combine first cup of water and cashews in blender–for ease of blending, you may want to let the cashews soak for 10 minutes.
  3. Add remaining blender ingredients while you wait.
  4. Blend until smooth as cream; pour into a small saucepan; rinse the blender with the remaining cup of hot water; and add to the kettle.
  5. Cook and stir over medium heat until bubbly and thickened. Turn off heat, cover and set aside until needed–don’t overcook as it will reduce and get too thick.
Recipe Notes

*I make my own by blending to powder dried Shitake mushrooms.  It enhances the flavor.  If you do not have this, use 1/4 teaspoon of celery salt.
