Let’s talk about vegan gravy for a minute. (Because like with many things, I have… some opinions).
Like its non-vegan counterpart, vegan gravy is great on mashed potatoes, stuffing, biscuits, veggie roasts, and even rice. Unlike its non-vegan counterpart, vegan gravy needs a little bit of love in the flavor department to bring the kind of umami punch that makes it worthy of this purpose. Luckily, we’re up for the challenge!
If you’re making a traditional gravy it’s going to have some natural savory flavor, plus the flavors of whatever the original dish was cooked with. Vegan food doesn’t really work like that, so we’re building our flavors from the ground up. A huge plus of this approach is that you get a consistently delicious vegan gravy every time.
There is another thing that’s “weird’ about my vegan gravy and that’s the way it is thickened.
