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!

I thought this was delicious! I made it last night and poured it on mashed potatoes, a vegan Boca patty, and some buttered bread.

I don't know if this happened to anyone else, but just a heads up: I had combined everything into the pan, and I let it sit over the heat without stirring. I was wondering why mine wasn't thickening, but then I finally started to stir with a whisk and there were a lot of clumps in the bottom. It had started to thicken from the bottom. This might be a no-brainer, but I just wanted to say, don't be alarmed if it looks all soupy even though its been sitting on the burner for a little while. Just give it a stir.

I used Kal brand nutritional yeast flakes for those who've had negative experiences with yeast flakes (I have), and this gravy came out fantastic! I think the yeast flakes definitely lend to the gravy taste in this one.


  I made this with the minimum amount of flour recommended and it came out perfect .  This will now be my staple recipe for gravy. I actually prefer this  to ANY other gravy I have had thus far. Even my super finicky 13 year old loved it! Thanks :D


Yummy, yummy, yummy! For some reason my boyfriend is the only one who can make it taste really good...I always add too much of something. This recipe is really great and I am so glad we can use this instead of buying the tofutti brand (which I don't care for at all). All our omni friends and family can't tell the long as I'm not the one making it.  :) Thanks for the great cruelty free recipe!


Mine came out pretty tasteless so I added a lot of Spike seasoning.  The author suggested rice flour so I tried that but didnt like how it came out. The texture was like Cream of Wheat. Next time I"ll use regular wheat flour.


So simple and tasty.  Omitted mustard and it was fine.  Took less than 5 minutes from start to finish.


Can the two cups of water and the bullion be substituted for just two cups of veggie broth? I intend to add mushrooms and caramelized onions, and use it with the Tofurky recipe for Thanksgiving.


damn good.....add mushrooms and good over bread with black pepper


This was tasty but I should have reread some of the reviews first because I just dumped the flour in and it turned out so lumpy!  I used vegetarian beef bouillon.  It had a more chicken gravy color and I would like to try and make it more beef gravy color so my squeamish boyfriend doesn't turn his nose up at it.  :)


Made this for mashed potatoes last night, ended up pouring it all over my boca ground beef and steamed carrots as well.  Have only attempted vegan gray couple other times, but this was by far the closest to the real thing.  I like it because it is simple and leaves room for your own choice of spices and add-ins (in threw in some sauteed onions and mushrooms)  It also made my night because i had it smothered over a piece of bread with a lot of butter which was a childhood favorite.



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
