Truthfully, I had never tried making a vegan gravy until this recipe and I’m blown away at how ridiculously easy and tasty it is!!
Welcome to day 2 of Thanksgiving week on the blog!!
Some gravy recipes call for making a roux but not mine. Some recipes call for pureed beans or sautéed mushrooms, but not mine!! No, no. That feels like too much unnecessary work!! I’m looking for simple, smooth and flavorful, and this is exactly that. Just whisk, warm and thicken! SO EASY.
Savory, creamy and decadent… I dream about it okay? I can’t wait to have my Creamy Mashed Potatoes smothered in this tasty gravy with a side of Vegan Lentil Loaf (gluten free!) for lunch. Mmmmm. What vegan dreams are made of.
All you need is 10 minutes and 10 ingredients that are mostly spices or things you probably have on hand already! I’m telling you, it’s a must try. You’ll never go back to a labor-intensive gravy! I mean, why would you?!
NOTE: I did use poultry seasoning which is vegan but really adds that umami flavor (along with the tamari and nutritional yeast) that is absolutely essential in a gravy because I will not allow my recipes to skimp on flavor. Poultry seasoning has the most perfect blend of spices for a flavorful gravy that doesn’t taste “vegan” or “plain” if you know what I mean! You can find it near the spices in the grocery store. It’s just much easier to buy pre-mixed like this! It’s great in savory recipes to get that herbaceous flavor. If you can’t find any, you can substitute dried or fresh sage, thyme, marjoram, celery seed, cayenne and some ground pepper.
This scrumptious and super affordable vegan gravy recipe is perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas or any holiday, really! Smother it over mashed potatoes, vegan stuffing, lentil loaf, biscuits, etc. Such a dream.
