Jump to Recipe

Get ready for this delicious, creamy and oh so tasty vegan gravy. It’s so easy to make and no one will believe it only took 10 minutes. This delicious vegan gravy recipe is a must with Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner. It goes with everything and is packed with flavors.

For me, this season is all about warming comfort foods and nothing says comfort food and holidays like mashed potatoes and gravy.
It seems to me like gravy is one of those things that tend to be overly complicated – especially vegan gravy. But this easy gravy recipe is here to change that.
It’s loaded with flavors and is sure to make everyone crave more. I always have to make a double portion when I have anyone over.

My family likes to consider themselves gravy connosouers. We have a deep appreciation for gravy and as such we also have a lot of opinions and demands as to what makes a great gravy. That’s why coming up with a vegan version that could rival their regular gravy was a top priority. But I also wanted my vegan gravy recipe to be easy and approachable. Partly because I don’t want to slave away in the kitchen for hours and partly because I believe that food should be as easy as it should be tasty.
To create my vegan gravy recipe I had to delve deep into our secret family gravy recipes (yes, they actually exist and each family member guards their gravy recipe like it’s the Holy Grail).

Getting the right creaminess

To get the right type of creamy gravy consistency I utilized the power of Nutritional Yeast. It gives that amazing cheesy and creamlike flavor that would usually be accomplished by double cream. If you don’t want to use nutritional yeast, you could replace some of the water with vegan double cream (for the best results you should use vegan double cream that’s made out of soy or oats).

What’s great about this recipe:

  • It’s so quick and easy to make
  • Thick, creamy and loaded with flavors
  • A true crowd pleaser
  • Vegan, dairy free and can be gluten free
  • Unlike regular gravy, this vegan gravy is a whole lot healthier

Serving

As with regular gravy, this vegan gravy goes well with everything. It’s amazing with mashed potatoes, mashed cauliflower, regular potatoes and the list goes on.
Try serving this gravy with my amazing creamy vegan mashed potatoes.
