Easy Vegan Gravy

Rated as 3.5 out of 5 Stars

"Got a recipe for this off this site, but there were too many steps and I wanted something much simpler and easier to prepare. This is what I did and the resultant gravy was simply delicious! Use over mashed potatoes, rice, biscuits, or for vegetarian pot pies."

  1. Heat olive oil in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in flour, nutritional yeast, onion powder, and garlic powder with a fork to make a smooth paste. Cook and stir paste for 1 minute. Add 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons water and 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons almond milk gradually, stirring gravy continuously with the fork to prevent lumps.
  2. Season gravy with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, stirring constantly, until thickened, 3 to 5 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • The yeast flakes give it a 'chicken' flavor; do not omit! Do not use brewer's yeast; that is something different!
