The recipe for these comes from a combination of my memory of an ex-boyfriend’s recipe, a recipe from vegweb and a recipe from my roommate’s cookbook (How it All Vegan). Vegan biscuits and gravy is the best food available on the planet (after tuno) and, due to this fact, capturing a photograph of this elusive entity is nearly impossible. However, I managed it for you, dear reader.
This cooking endeavor, like most of my endeavors in life, was ill-planned and poorly executed but turned out awesomely anyway. After yesterday’s baking debacle, I made sure to check the recipe to verify that I had all of the ingredients. The only ingredient we were missing was baking powder and as yesterday’s attempt to make baking powder out of baking soda and apple cider vinegar (why did I think I could do that?) was met with dubious success, I borrowed three teaspoons from our upstairs neighbor. Unfortunately, halfway through making the gravy, I realized that I’d used all of our flour to make the biscuits so I had to go back upstairs and borrow a cup of flour as well.
I should add that I have literally never spoken to my upstairs neighbor before today. She seems very nice.
Vegan Biscuits & Gravy
NOTE: You could probably leave out the nutritional yeast but I’ve never tried it that way. You can usually find nutritional yeast in the bulk aisle of your local natural foods store.
NOTE: You can make this gravy without soy milk, miso, onions, or apple cider vinegar. The crucial elements are the soy sausage, flour, water, and soy sauce.
