Brown Gravy
Lindsay S. Nixon


  • 1/4 Cup  nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 Cup  whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 2 Cups  vegetable broth
  • 2 Tablespoons  low-sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 Teaspoon  onion powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon  garlic powder
  •   Salt and pepper, to taste

Gravy isn't confined just to carnivores — try this vegan recipe based on soy sauce, nutritional yeast, and vegetable broth. It's quick, easy, and delicious with this Hippie Loaf.


In a small nonstick skillet, whisk the nutritional yeast and flour together and toast over medium heat until it smells toasty, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a medium-sized saucepan and whisk in the vegetable broth, soy sauce, onion powder, and garlic powder. Bring to a boil and let thicken as desired. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.


Note: For an even thicker gravy, mix 1 tablespoon cornstarch with 2 tablespoons water and pour it in to the gravy.
