This basic vegetarian and vegan gravy recipe uses fresh herbs, including sage and parsley, to get lots of flavor. You'll need a good gravy to go with a vegetarian or vegan lentil loaf recipe, mashed potatoes and of course, with Tofurky on your vegetarian Thanksgiving!

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups broth (vegetable)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley (fresh, minced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sage (fresh, minced)
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch (dissolved in 2 tablespoons water)
  • Optional: 2 teaspoons yeast (nutritional)

  3. Reduce heat to a simmer, then slowly add the cornstarch and water mixture, stirring constantly to thicken.
  4. Allow to simmer for a few minutes, until thick, and add nutritional yeast if desired.
