RECIPE: Vegan Biscuits and Gravy

When I was a kid, I couldn’t stand biscuits and gravy.  My parents thought it was a real treat and raved about it on the rare occasions we had it (usually at a restaurant).  Since I’ve never liked it, I was surprised when I decided to make it a few days ago.  It started when I bought a nice white gravy mix from Vegan Essentials for us to have a gravy for our potatoes at Thanksgiving.  The gravy tasted EXACTLY like the gravy in Biscuits and Gravy.  So, anyway, here is my quick and easy veganized recipe.

Vegan Biscuits and Gravy

  • 1/2 cup white gravy mix
  • 3 cups soymilk (vanilla or plain) or water
  • 2 tubes Gimme Lean vegan sausage (often found in the produce section)
  • 12+ homemade biscuits (Bisquick makes a nice whole wheat mix) or 2-3 tubes whole wheat biscuits (note that the non-whole wheat ones have either dairy, beef tallow, and/or eggs in them — making them unhealthy and definitely not vegan)

Start the sausage first.  Fry in a pan with A LOT of water — using water allows you to not use any oils.  Keep adding water as necessary to have the sausage not stick to the pan. While it is cooking, mix the gravy mix with either water or soymilk (I used vanilla soymilk).  Heat until boiling, mixing fairly frequently with a whisk.  As soon as it is done, start the biscuits in the oven – they only take 10 minutes.  Everything should finish at the same time.  Assemble and add salt and/or pepper as desired.  Eat and enjoy.  This feeds 4 hungry adults or 2 hungry adults with plenty of leftovers.  🙂
