Start by soaking a handful of dried mushrooms in hot water for an hour.
Peel and boil the sweet potatoes until soft.

Mash your potato and add the turmeric, spices & add cooked onions & balsamic vinegar.
Add the mushroom water into the mixture & combine with your hand food processor until you have a smooth gravy consistency. Add salt & pepper to taste & serve hot.
Sweet potatoes are a fantastic source of vitamin A, which comes from the beta-carotene. They contain more vitamin C than standard white potatoes & manganese, copper, pantothenic acid & B6.
They are also a great source of dietary fibre, potassium, & B vitamins.
Red onions contain lots of fantastic vitamins & minerals including B vitamins, calcium, potassium, magnesium, & vitamins A & K. They benefit you because they have photo-chemicals which aid the absorption & function of vitamin C, which helps improve the bodies ability to fight infections & strengthens are immunity & fights inflammation.
They also contain chromium, which plays an important role in blood sugar regulation.
Balsamic vinegar contains antioxidants & helps digestion. It is also low on the glycemic index & it has been proven to be stabilizing for cholesterol levels. It is made from pressing fermenting grapes. It ages in wooden barrels, & it contains an array of vitamins & minerals including vitamins A, C, D,E & B vitamins. Iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, copper, selenium to name a few.
Turmeric with black pepper is nature’s natural ibupofen & is an excellent source of iron & manganese.
Mushroom water was used for its wealth of health benefits & added flavour. They are packed with many wonderful antioxidants & selenium & vitamin D.
I wanted this gravy to incorporate as many tasty healthy benefits as possible. You may mistake the rich flavour as anon-vegan gravy. However it is so much better!
