The Perfect Vegan Gravy :)

When attempting my first vegan thanksgiving, I stumbled upon this recipe and was delighted and surprised how flavorful and traditional this gravy tasted. A must for family gatherings and dinners!

Ingredients:

  • all purpose flour
  • non dairy margarine (I used Earth Balance)
  • 1 not beef or not chicken bouillon (I used Edward & Sons) if you can’t get a hold of this you can use veggie bullion, its easy to find
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • 1/4 teaspoon of liquid smoke
  • salt & pepper to taste

Step1: Heat an melt the margarine in a sauce pan. Sprinkle in a little flour and with a whisk, mix with the butter until its a thick paste. (This is called making a roux.) Now pour in the water and add the bouillon cube, stir to mix everything together. When it starts to simmer lighty and slowly sprinkle in flour to thicken, add the liquid smoke and salt and pepper to taste. Keep adding flour until it is a gravy consistency.

Pour over mashed potatoes, lentil loaf, or anything you want. This gravy will have you saying yummmmm.
