Vegetable Gravy

A Very Good Vegan Gravy Recipe

If you have vegans or vegetarians coming to dinner and you want to make gravy, do not worry because it is possible to make a delicious vegan gravy recipe without sacrificing any flavor. You can either use vegetable broth or “no-chicken broth” as your base and the other ingredients include poultry seasoning, non-dairy margarine and more. Actually, a lot of recipes can be adapted for vegans by switching the meat broth for vegetarian broth and you can also use non-dairy margarine to make the mashed potatoes.

Of course, if you also have carnivores coming to dinner, you might want to make regular gravy too. In that case, it might be best to prepare the vegan gravy recipe first and keep it warm in a crockpot until you are ready to serve dinner. You can make it the day before, if that is helpful, and reheat it in the crockpot the following day. The gravy will not lose quality by being made in advance. It will not take on a new depth of flavor either so just make it in advance if that is going to save you time and if you have space in the refrigerator to store it.

The following vegan gravy recipe tastes just like chicken gravy so if you want to serve that instead of a traditional chicken gravy recipe, most of the meat-eaters at the table will not even be able to tell the difference. The paprika and onion powder are optional ingredients but worth adding for more depth of flavor. Smoked paprika is the best kind to use in this. Garlic powder would also be tasty in this vegan gravy recipe. If you want to add any of these optional ingredients, just add a little at a time, tasting as you go. Continue reading

How to Make White Gravy to Serve Over Fries

This is an unusual recipe, especially if you are used to eating your fries with mayonnaise or ketchup. Nevertheless, if you fancy a change, just try this white gravy recipe because it is spectacular with the fries, and makes a change from the condiments you usually go for. American creamy white gravy is also nice with homemade biscuits or mashed potato. This recipe is also similar to a breakfast gravy recipe and it is straightforward to make, even for cooking beginners.

The green onions in this recipe add a splash of color and their sharp flavor contrasts well with the sweet, creamy white gravy. Serve this as comfort food, any time you fancy something hot and soothing, or even as a side dish with burgers, chicken or some other kind of meat or poultry. One of the reasons that fries are a comfort food is that you can eat them with your fingers, dipping them into a sauce (or, in this case, a homemade gravy recipe) and eating them like that. Another reason is that they taste wonderful.

There is no way your kids are going to be anything less than delighted with this great recipe, although you might want to leave off the green onion if you are making this for younger kids who are suspicious about anything that resembles a vegetable (don’t tell them the fries are made from vegetables!)

Hello, I'm Christine. Thanks for dropping by and welcome to Amazing Sauces. Food is a very important part of our family's lives, and I find a homemade sauce often finishes a dish perfectly. Whether you are making something with chicken, beef, pork, vegetables, an appetizer, or even a dessert recipe, a sauce is often the ideal finishing touch.

You will find many sauce recipes here, all conveniently in one place, from the classics like tomato sauce, béchamel sauce and cheese sauce, to gravies, marinades, and unusual ideas for sauces too like ginger-plum sauce or gorgonzola sauce.

Some sauces can be drizzled over the meal, while others are best served on the side. Some will work as a dip or sauce, while others are great for basting, marinating or adding a splash of color to a recipe. Try our creamy gravies with your breakfast, one of our international steak marinades for a sophisticated spin on dinner, or learn how to make a classic béarnaise or rich red wine sauce to complement your dish.
