I Can't Believe It's Vegan Gravy!

What you need: 

1 vegetable bullion cube
2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
few good dashes garlic powder
2 heaped tablespoons nutritional yeast
few good dashes soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon mustard
1/4-1/2 cup flour, as needed (I use brown rice flour)
1 tablespoon vegan butter
sea salt and pepper, to taste

What you do: 

1. Combine all ingredients in pot, and bring to boil.
2. Cook on medium low heat until done.
I sometimes like to add a little pinch of sage as well. This goes great over everything! My Dad (avid meat eater) says that this gravy is delicious!

This gravy is AMAZING.

I have made this recipe loads of time and every time people are shocked it is vegan.

Perfect for the holidays!


super yummy. just be sure to add the flour little by little or it will clump together.
i added a teaspoon on vegan chicken flavoring and it tasted like real chicken gravy!


Made this last night for my mashed potatoes and Field Roast vegan meatloaf. SO AMAZING. I made a smaller version with all the ingredients and just guessing at the amounts. I used dijon and made the roux and slowly added the water until it was the desired consistency. Thank you so much, this is by far the best vegan gravy I have ever had!!



This is the shizznit. (yes, I still say shizznit)
I love it, and so does my carnivorous family! I use it as the gravy in my vegan Shepard's Pie.

YUM! <3

:)  I agree... this was GREAT...even my 9 year old meat eating granddaughter ate everything with no problem...thanks for sharing


Is it just us or does this taste remarkably similair to KFC gravy?! It even coagulated after being in the fridge the same way KFC gravy did. Or maybe we're dillusional because we haven't had KFC in years. Either way, it is very tasty!


I left out the butter and used whole wheat flour and this was really good.  If I had potatoes in the house, I would have used it on a poutine like one of the pictures.  Very good!


Very good gravy. I used white flour, and took the recommendations of others and slowly stirred the flour in  after everything else was boiling. Turned out great.  ;)b


I made this gravy to go on top of seitan loaf and mashed potatos.  My mom ate my vegan dinner I actually prepared for myself.  She is a carnivore so she surprised me by saying, I don't mind vegan every once in a while.  So she had a vegan dinner along with me.  Then she further shocked the he!! out of me by saying "wow, this gravy is good, what is in it?"  I really thought that she was not going to like it, I really did.  She  even commented on it again today, "that gravy was really good."  I agree, it was good, but the fact that she liked it really shocked me. 

Thanks for this recipe.  I may not be able to turn my mom vegan, but if I get her to eat a vegan meal every once in a while, I feel I have done a good job.  And recipes like this help.


This is one of my favorite gravy's-it's simple, quick, and good.  As other reviewers mentioned, it's way easier if you melt the EB in the pan and then stir in the flour, and THEN add all the other ingredients.  I think it's better with just a teaspoon or two of NY because if you add the full amount it tends to take like cheeze sauce and not gravy. 


this was good and quick, i used dijon mustard, less EB, and only 1/4 of flour.. it was plenty and thickened up fine.  i shoulda mixed the flour with some water to make a paste first cus even when i added it in a sprinkle at a time it still had tons of little lumps.  i also added more onion and garlic powders and it was really good with my mashed potatoes, 'meat'loaf and corn.
