Original recipe yields 2 1/2 cups



  1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in flour, nutritional yeast, and soy sauce to form a smooth paste. Gradually whisk in the broth. Season with sage, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring constantly, for 8 to 10 minutes, or until thickened.

This was a big hit on Thanksgiving. It went perfectly with a Tofurky. I was in a rush and did not read the reviews, so mine came out way too thick. I just added more spices and water until the consistency seemed right to me. Next time I’ll cut back on the oil and flour. The trick to a perfect gravy is to always have equal amounts of fat (oil or butter) and flour so be sure to cut both equally. I also allowed the flour to brown a little before adding the vegetable stock. I think that really adds to the flavor. I would say that the nutritional yeast is not necessary, but it helps a lot. For those who don't know, for some reason nutritional yeast + soy sauce = total goodness. You see that combination in a lot of vegetarian recipes. This will definitely be in my recipe box permanently with some doctoring. I think this recipe would adapt well, like using mushroom broth instead of vegetable. I’ll definitely try it again. Thanks.



i can't believe how good this gravy is. last year i bought vegetarian mushroom gravy for thanksgiving and it was awful so this year i looked for a good recipe but this exceeded all of my expectations. i used half the oil because of other user comments and omitted the salt and added about 3/4 cup water because it was thick but it's the best.

I'm not a vegetarian, but it had gotten down to the end of the month, and we didn't have any sausages for my standard sausage gravy. As a matter-of-fact, we didn't have a lot of things, so I had to make quite a few substitutions. Olive oil for the generic vegetable oil, no nutritional yeast, ordinary soy sauce, portabello mushroom broth for vegetable broth, no salt, and parsley, rather than sage. The result was extremely good, and I was pleasantly surprised. This is the sort of thing you can pull off without much effort, and I'll definitely make it again.
