Easy Vegan Gravy! BEST vegetarian alternative to chicken or turkey gravy! READY IN 10 MINUTES to pour over mashed potatoes and everything else! Gluten free option!




  • 1/4 cup vegan butter, I use earth balance
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour plus 1 tablespoon*

Broth ingredients:


  1. Add the broth ingredients to a glass measuring cup (with a spout helps) whisk together and set aside.
  2. Melt butter in a sauce pot/pan over medium heat.
  3. Once melted and hot stir or whisk in the flour until it's all incorporated and forms a paste (that's the roux)
  4. Slowly whisk in the vegetable broth mix
  5. Bring to a simmer on medium heat and cook until thickened while stirring, 4 minutes or so. Turn down heat slightly if necessary. If gravy is too thick add a little water too thin. For a thicker gravy add a tablespoon of flour and a little water to a small bowl to make a paste, whisk into gravy. (Important note-gravy will thicken slightly as it cools)
  6. Enjoy! Delicious served for Vegan Thanksgiving with  mashed potatoes, vegan turkey, stuffing, vegetables, etc.. or- French fries or poutine- so many options! For step by step photos see above post
