Nom nom nom! This vegan gravy is so good you will want to put it on everything. Every person who has tried this is hooked including non-vegetarians.
Do you remember that friends episode where Ross’s turkey and gravy sandwich was eaten by a coworker and he lost his cool, resulting in him loosing his job…well this gravy would make you react the same way if someone took your Tofurkey gravy sandwich. So beware!
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 cubes garlic or 2 garlic cloves diced
- 1 small white onion, diced (if medium use 1/2 of it)
- 2 tbsp light soy sauce
- 2 tbsp Red Star Nutritional Yeast
- 1/4 cup flour (or less)
- 3/4 cup vegetable broth
- 3/4 cup water
Dice the onion. Pour the oil into 2qt saucepan and add the onion and garlic. Heat the pan on medium and stir constantly until the onion turns translucent. This should take about 8 minutes. Be careful not to burn the onion. If needed lower the heat.
While this is going on in a separate pot dilute the 3/4 vegetable stock with the 3/4 water. Bring it to a cook boil. Remove from heat.
Returning to the saucepan, once the onion is translucent, reduce the heat to low and add the flour. Using a wooden spoon stir until it turns into a thick paste. Add the soy sauce. Stir.
Next add 1 cup of the water/stock mixture. Stir well. If you think the gravy is too thick, add the addition 1/2 cup of the water/stock mixture. I prefer it this way, as I do not like my gravy uber thick.
The last step is add the nutritional yeast. If you haven’t used nutritional yeast before it can be found at any Whole Foods. Add the nutritional yeast and stir well.
Then let it heat for about 4-5 minutes while stirring, and then you are done!
Note that the gravy thickens when not hot. This is more than fine. Simply reheat in the saucepan on the stove and stir. It will return to the same smooth consistency.
