Thanksgiving Vegetarian Gravy

This vegetarian gravy for thanksgiving is very easy to make and it goes well with the mashed potatoes. Usually they add nutritional yeast for the vegetarian gravy recipe. But I did not add that. Still it tasted good.

Time of Preparation : 15 minutes
Spice level : 3
No of Servings : 2


  • Oil – 3 tbsp
  • Chopped Onion – 1/4 cup
  • Garlic – 3 cloves (finely chopped)
  • All purpose flour – 1/3 cup
  • Soy sauce – 1 tbsp
  • Salt – to taste
  • Black pepper – 1/2 tsp (crushed) (according to spice level)
  • Dried sage – 1/4 tsp

Method of Preparation:

  1. Heat oil in a pan and add the onion and garlic and fry them ย until translucent.
  2. Add the flour and soy sauce to form a smooth paste.
  3. Add some water, sage, salt, and pepper.
  4. Boil it till it becomes thick and serve with the mashed potatoes.


  1. Right in time for thanksgiving. looks creamy!

    • very nice recipe ๐Ÿ™‚ I can also make a suggestion here since I am a Paleo-fied convert to the paleo regimen eating lifestyle. Substitute the soy sauce for coconut liquid aminos, the AP flour for coconut flour for those that are gluten intolerant and for those who have celiac disease

    @Deepu : Sage has its own distinct flavor but you can try thyme.

    • How much is “some water”?

      • Sorry for the late reply. Around 1 or 1 1/2 cup of water is fine.
