This is one of the first things I came up with when I switched to a plant-based diet back in 1995. There was a restaurant in Seattle called The Globe that had biscuits and gravy that were world-renowned. So we were determined to recreate them in our apartment. While we never got close, this gravy was a fantastic ‘second prize’.
Gravy is never easy to photograph. It looks like mud on some tofu. But not only does it taste amazing, it fills up the whole household with a warming, autumn aroma. It will raise the sleepiest of sleepers.
- 1 Cup Mushrooms finely chopped (about 6 mushrooms)
- 1/2 Cup Onion, finely chopped (about 1/2 an onion)
- 2 Garlic Cloves, finely chopped
- 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil (any oil will do)
- 1 1/4 Cup Water
- 2 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce
- 1/2 Teaspoon Oregano
- 2 Bay Leaves
- 4 Tablespoons Flour
- Pepper to taste
Heat the oil in a sauce pan, then add the onion, mushroom and garlic. Sautee until onions are translucent.
Add the water, soy sauce, oregano, pepper, and bay leaves and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
Reduce to low heat and add the flour. Use a whisk to thoroughly to mix it in. Gently mix until it boils and forms a gravy. You may want to add more water depending on how thick you like your gravy.
