  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp white shiro miso
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp gluten-free tamari
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot powder (or cornstarch, or all-purpose flour)
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter


  • In a blender combine vegetable broth, miso, onion powder, tamari, nutritional yeast and arrowroot powder. Blend until smooth and combined.
  • Melt vegan butter in saucepan and add blended liquid. Simmer vegan gravy until thickened, approx. 8-10 minutes. Serve alongside your favourite cozy dishes like potatoes, festive falafels, stuffing and roasted vegetables.


Blending the ingredients together first will aid in making a smooth gravy. Gravy will keep in fridge for up to 5 days, and can be made in advance.
Nutritional information is a rough estimate, based on 1 cup of gravy.
