Easy Vegan Gravy can be made in about 15 minutes using minimal ingredients but packing huge flavor! Throw it on some mashed potatoes, make a vegan poutine or dunk a sandwich in it- you won’t miss meat gravy with this recipe!

We’ve been making this easy vegan gravy since 2014! We were bound and determined to come up with a delicious vegan gravy for holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas where there would only be a meat gravy option.

We all know that mashed potatoes without gravy are shit.

Just kidding, but it was nice to have some vegan gravy to slather on everything!

Our Everything Mashed Potatoes are perfect for this gravy, they have some sneaky veggies added and are definitely kid approved!

The only ingredient you may not have on hand for this is nutritional yeast. We LOVE this stuff because it has vitamin b12 added and adds a cheesy flavor to dishes that need that. 

We highly recommend not skipping the nutritional yeast if possible because it adds so much to the gravy!

Another recommendation is to get your hands on some Bragg’s Liquid Aminos- an alternative to soy sauce. The ingredients are just soy beans and purified water! We think it tastes even better than regular soy sauce and it skips all the shitty ingredients like caramel coloring and has way less of your daily sodium.

HOW DO YOU MAKE EASY VEGAN GRAVY?

There are a few steps, but they are totally worth it in order to get that deep, rich flavor. 

Start by dissolving a veggie bouillon cube with the water and soy sauce. 

Make a mixture of flour, black pepper and nutritional yeast.

On low heat, add butter, onion and garlic powder. Simmer for 3 minutes, then add the flour mixture and stir into a paste.

Stir the paste continuously and cook for about 5 minutes.

Whisk in the veggie broth mixture until smooth and no clumps remain. Turn the heat up to medium and stir until the gravy thickens!

Serve immediately on our Everything Mashed Potatoes, french fries or whatever your heart desires!
