This Vegan Gravy is as Easy as Gravy! Super rich and delicious, you’ll want to drizzle it on just about anything you can!

Gravy is one of those things that I was always mystified by before going vegan. Like, you gotta roast an animal, and then use the rendered fat? And you add what else to it? How do you make it thick? I honestly just never made it! Good news is this Vegan Gravy requires no animals and it’s easy as HECK!

It’s also super delicious! I know something like this is good when I can just eat it with a spoon like soup! This stuff is perfect for some Mashed Potatoes, a Vegan Roast Turkey, or a Shepherd’s Pie! I even ate some with just a piece of bread and it was one of the best things I ate that day.

why you’ll dig vegan Gravy

Besides the fact that it’s super delicious, it’s also incredibly easy to make! It’s literally just a roux with some stock and seasonings! You can also customize it to your heart’s content.

It’s great on just about any Holiday dish too! Maybe not pumpkin pie, but who knows!

ingredients for vegan Gravy

  • Vegan Butter – Gravy is mostly fat, so vegan butter will do a great job at that!
  • Flour – To thicken the gravy of course!
  • Vegan Chick’n Broth or Veggie Broth – You can use any kind of broth you like, just make sure it’s tasty!
  • Mushroom Seasoning – I use this stuff all the time, but if you can’t get it or something like it, you can always use some nutritional yeast instead.
  • Browning SauceKitchen Bouquet and Gravy Master are my choices for this. It’s mostly for color but does add some flavor. If you can’t get it, don’t worry about it, your gravy might just be a bit lighter in color.
  • Other Additions – You can always add other umami packed ingredients into this. Soy sauce, vegan steak sauce, vegan worcestershire would all work great, so get creative and have fun with it!

how to make vegan Gravy

  • First melt the vegan butter in a skillet or saucepan. Then add in the flour one tablespoon at a time and whisk it in. Add in the broth a bit at a time and whisk that in as well. Then add in everything else, whisk and reduce to your desired consistency.

You’re done, use your Easy Vegan Gravy however you’d like!

Vegan Gravy

Vegan Gravy

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup vegan butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 - 3 cups vegan beef broth or veggie broth*
  • 1 Tbsp Mushroom Seasoning**
  • 1 tsp browning sauce like Gravy Master (optional)
  • Salt & pepper to taste (if needed)

Instructions

  1. In a skillet, over medium heat, melt the butter, then whisk in the flour 1 Tbsp at a time. Once all flour has been whisked in, cook for one minute to get rid of the raw flour.
  2. Dissolve mushroom seasoning into the vegan beef / veggie broth. Whisk in the broth about 1/2 cup at a time. Add the browning sauce.
  3. Whisk to combine and then reduce and thicken to desired consistency. Taste and adjust for seasoning.

Notes

*Use less broth for a thicker gravy, more for a thinner one.

**Mushroom Seasoning - I use this stuff all the time, but if you can't get it or something like it, you can always use some nutritional yeast instead.

Browning Sauce - Kitchen Bouquet and Gravy Master are my choices for this. It's mostly for color but does add some flavor. If you can't get it, don't worry about it, your gravy might just be a bit lighter in color.

Other Additions - You can always add other umami packed ingredients into this. Soy sauce, vegan steak sauce, vegan worcestershire would all work great, so get creative and have fun with it!
