Notes

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

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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.

Gravy Shopping Tip

Instead of buying stock in a box for your gravy, try buying bones from the butcher to use as the base in your own.

Gravy Cooking Tip

If gravy has a chalky taste, the flour may not be cooked long enough – make sure to whisk flour until it is a deep golden color and smells nutty before adding liquid.
