Shiitake Gravy

iAs promised...

Shiitake Gravy

3 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup of shiitake mushroom caps
1/2 cup of soymilk
1/2 cup of water
2 tablespoons of onions
1 tablespoon of oil
2 teaspoons of ginger
1 teaspoon of black pepper
1 teaspoon of turmeric
1/2 teaspoon of cumin

In a sauce pan, heat the oil and add the garlic (chopped) and onions (chopped). Once the onions begin to soften and become translucent, add the mushrooms (chopped) and black pepper. Stir frequently and let the mixture cook on low heat for about 4 minutes until the mushrooms are tender. Add the water and soymilk and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, add the remaining spices and let it cook down. Stir frequently and this process should take about 20 minutes. When done, this should be a semi thick gravy. It is it not thickening on its own, add a little cornstarch.
