How to Make Simple Classic Vegan Gravy

This 5-ingredient, 10- minute gravy starts by heating up your favorite vegetable or mushroom broth in a heavy bottom pot with some soy sauce or tamari and the spices listed below. As it begins to simmer start whisking in small amounts of flour, continue to whisk while the gravy thickens. Finally, remove from the heat and serve immediately on top of your vegan mashed potatoes!

Can you Freeze Gravy?

Yes! You can freeze the gravy in an air tight container for a few months and once you are ready to use it, let it thaw in the refrigerator overnight, then re-heat and serve!

What else can you use Gravy on?

Gravy can make a great addition to so many dishes, but some of my favorites are mashed potatoes, fries (for a Canadian poutine), lentil loaf and other meat alternatives.

Can a switch up this Simple Classic Vegan Gravy?

You can easily switch up this gravy by adding some additional spices such as rosemary, thyme, or sage. It can also be made Gluten-free by using Tamari instead of soy sauce and Gluten-free flour!
