In a hurry?

Tired of Thanksgiving leftovers?

Not a problem.

Hamburger Mushroom Gravy Over Mashed Potatoes or Rice

  • Brown 2-3 lbs (I used 3 lbs for my family of seven) Lean Ground Beef (or ground turkey)
  • If desired, add some green onions while the beef browns
  • Please salt your ground beef
  • Once the beef is browned, drain
  • Next, add one container of Imagine Portobello Mushroom Soup
  • Bring to a simmer
  • Add a little more salt to taste, a dash of garlic powder, and whatever else you think might give it some pizzazz.
  • Whisk together 1/2 cup cornstarch or tapioca starch with water (should measure about 2/3 cup and not have any undissolved starch present.)
  • Pour cornstarch mixture through a handheld strainer to catch any lumps.
  • That’s right, pour it right into the simmering hamburger and soup.
  • Keep things simmering and stir constantly until the mixture thickens.
  • Once the mixture is thickened, serve by the ladle full over hot, cooked rice or mashed potatoes.
  • Serve with a salad or other vegetable and you have a quick, easy, comforting dinner.

Happy Simple Suppers!
