Can you eat gravy on a plant based diet? Traditionally, gravy is made using drippings from the turkey to make, which means it’s not plant based. However, this easy recipe makes the easiest plant-based gravy.

How to Make Plant-Based Gravy

It’s really to make an easy plant-based gravy. There are some really great vegan beef broths on the market. In Canada, PC makes a good one and in the United States (and some places in Canada) you can get better than bouillon vegan beef broth. This recipe can be made with vegetable broth but I don’t recommend it since the vegan beef flavour matches the taste of traditional gravy. The depth of flavor you receive from the vegan beef broth is much richer and deeper than a vegetable broth.

To make plant-based gravy:

  1. Start by heating a saucepan and melting the butter into it on medium heat.
  2. While butter melts create a slurry by mixing a bit of your broth with your potato starch to avoid clumping. Set aside.
  3. When butter is melted add garlic until fragrant (about 1 min)
  4. Mix in the rest of your ingredients except for the slurry. You don’t want to add in the potato starch to early as the continued heat can breakdown the starch and make it not do it’s job.
  5. Whisk frequently until it begins to boil.
  6. Whisk in potato starch slurry and reduce heat to simmer.
  7. Continue to whisk as it begins to thicken.
  8. Serve over your favourite potato recipe!

Kitchen Equipment I used for recipe:

  • Aesthetically pleasing teal spoon set – a lot of people recently have been asking about my spoon set and I feel like a fraud because everyone thinks it’s some expensive set but it’s super inexpensive and they look amazing!
  • Super cheap but quality non-stick pan – A good non-stick pan will change your life and it doesn’t have to break the bank. I love this one because it’s made out of granite and is super durable!

    * The % Daily Value tells you how much a nutrient in a serving of food contributes to a daily diet. 2,000 calories a day is used for general nutrition advice.

    Sauces and dips in general aren’t very nutritious. I try to limit them as much as possible because save for a few you’re just adding extra calories and sodium to a meal (extra delicious calories albeit).

    That being said this gravy gets a bit of a boost in a couple of areas because of the nutritional yeast we add-in. This easy vegan gravy recipe also has less than 100 calories per serving coming in at only 77, which puts it on the lighter side still so all in all, not a terrible choice.

    Commonly asked Vegan Gravy Questions

    How long does vegan gravy last in the fridge?

    Generally about 5 days to a week.

    Because there aren’t a ton of additives to this recipe it holds for a while. Although the longer it sits the more it will set so when you go to reheat it for a meal you may have to mix in water so that it’s not jelly-like.

      Made this gravy for my mashed potato’s and oh boy is it good! I used the presidents choice no-beef broth (super affordable) and loved the flavour. Gonna freeze it in smaller containers to have whenever I need gravy. Any thoughts how long it could last in freezer?
