  3. Now add the mushrooms and fresh herbs and cook for a couple minutes until the mushrooms have softened down making sure to stir regularly.
  4. Add the stock, tamari and cacao powder and mix together.

You can have the gravy with the bits or you can strain it to make it more like normal gravy if you wish. Both ways taste great! If you strain it then KEEP the leftovers as these make as a great side or even for having with leftovers the next day!
