Often times it's the sauces and gravies that make a dish memorable. This easy fat-free vegan gravy is no exception. It's great served over mashed potatoes or cauliflower, drizzled on meatless meatloaf or even on a baked potato or fluffy biscuit. There's no reason to feel guilty with this plant-based version because it's made without oil or dairy. If you have a good vegetable broth that you love, you're ready to go.
It's really that easy so don't be afraid to make it on a busy night. After you throw in the whole wheat, onion powder, and nutritional yeast, toast them for a minute or two to bring out their flavor. Then add the vegetable broth and whisk to keep it from lumping. Alternatively, you can put the dry ingredients into a jar with a lid, add about 1/4 cup of the broth and shake it to combine. My mother used this trick when she needed a sauce thickened a little more if it didn't get thick enough the first time. It's come in handy many times.
My family seems to love gravy and, especially during the holidays, we make extra. If you like a lot of gravy you might want to double this easy fat-free vegan gravy for your meal or to keep on hand for the next day.
