I need a recommendation for a good prepared gravy

I'll be making a vegetarian holiday meal, and this, Gardein Holiday Roast will be the main protein, but I want gravy for the roast & taters.


Thanks you

1. This one is simple and REALLY good.

Ingredients
2 cups vegetable broth
3/4 teaspoon onion powder
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon soy sauce (or use tamari for gluten free)
1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
1/4 cup all purpose flour (or use brown rice flour for gluten free)

3. Mushroom broth works great

Simply reconstitute dried mushrooms in a bowl with boiling water for about 5-10 minutes. Strain the mushrooms and reserve the broth. Chop the mushrooms to add to the finished gravy.

4. Vegemite is much better than nutritional yeast IMO

It can be a little tricky to find (Marmite is more common, it's also good but not quite the same), but it's a much meatier whack than noosh. I use it along with roast mushroom broth for my vegan gravy; it's dam near as good as a full-blown meat stock sauce.

5. Thanks for the tip...

is your recipe similar to the one above? I'd love to make a knock your socks off vegan version.

6. It's similar, not quite the same

I put plenty of tomatoes in the mushroom stock, and make a pretty deep brown roux with either butter or oil depending on vegetarian/vegan needs - the toasted flour adds another layer of flavor for more depth. I don't add mustard; I'll sometimes switch soy for Worcestershire depending on how I'm feeling.

There's other tricks like adding straight MSG, or a little agar-agar for a gelatinous mouthfeel more like a meat stock, but that's mostly just icing on the cake - the basic stock+Vegemite works wonders. Cheers!
