Easy Vegan Gravy

Looking for an easy vegan gravy? Your prayers have been answered with this stellar simple recipe. This easy vegan gravy is FULL of flavour. It’s lush, creamy and rich with all the umami flavour we’re looking for in a good gravy.

This gravy uses flavour-rich ingredients like miso, tamari, and nutritional yeast to get that perfect flavour you’ll lick your plate for. Trust me, it certainly measures it up to the traditional kind. Serve it to any vegan skeptic and watch them pour and devour.

So, let’s get into how to make this delicious easy vegan gravy.

The ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make this Easy Vegan Gravy:

  • vegan butter (I like Earth Balance)
  • arrowroot starch (you can also use cornstarch, or all-purpose flour)
  • vegetable broth
  • white shiro miso
  • onion powder
  • gluten-free tamari
  • nutritional yeast

What I love most about this vegan gravy is just how simple it is to throw together.

There are a few not-so-typical ingredients like white miso and nutritional yeast, but once you have them on hand the recipe is fast to make. Simply throw the ingredients into a blender, pour into a saucepan and heat. (And, ingredients like miso and nutritional yeast are pantry staples in my home. I use it for so many recipes on this blog to add umami or cheesiness to dishes. So, I promise they will come in handy.)

Unlike most vegan gravy recipes that are time consuming – made by cooking veg first and blending together – this gravy is effortless to create. Just what we need when there’s a whole Thanksgiving/Christmas dinner to prepare! Certainly, it’s a recipe that can be left to the last minute, and made quick. And the flavours OH MY! You won’t believe something so simple can taste so good.

Easy Vegan Gravy: Tips and Notes

There isn’t much involved to nailing this Quick and Easy Vegan Gravy. After all, I did say it’s easy! But I do have a few tid-bits of advice to make the process simple and fuss-free.

I recommend to blend the ingredients (minus the vegan butter) together in a blender, to ensure it’s smooth and well combined. And then transfer to a saucepan with vegan butter to warm and thicken. The reason is because arrowroot starch can clump easily, and even with a whisk it can be hard to whip out the clumps. Blending the ingredients together first really helps create a smooth consistency.

You can also sub the arrowroot powder for cornstarch or all-purpose flour. These substitutes also work well. The purpose of this ingredient is to thicken the gravy, not to give any additional flavour. So feel free to use what you have on hand.

Easy Vegan Gravy: What to serve it with

So, what to serve with this Quick and Easy Vegan Gravy? Anything you love having gravy with, of course!

Pour over baked potatoes or mashed, stuffing, and roasted veg. In our family, gravy is a Thanksgiving and Holiday staple. Dinner is just not the same without it.

I particularly enjoy this vegan gravy with my Mushroom and Spinach Baked Potatoes, and Festive Falafels.
