How to Make Vegan Gravy

Need gravy, but prefer the vegetarian version? There's still a way to get that flavorful sauce you love to pour over rice or potatoes. A handful of mushrooms do the trick.


Step 1

Heat olive oil on medium heat. Add onions and mushrooms. Saute for 6 to 7 minutes, stirring as needed.

Step 2

Add vegetable broth and tamari or soy sauce.

Step 3

Stir in flour, a little at a time. Beat or whisk thoroughly to prevent lumps. Reduce heat to low and simmer.

Step 4

Add seasonings and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring uncovered. Serve over rice or potatoes.

Tips and Warnings

For delicious mustard sauce or gravy, skip the mushrooms (optional) and add 1 generous tablespoon of Dijon mustard before simmering.
