What are your favorite Thanksgiving gravy recipes? I'm in charge of bringing the gravy and Tofurky. Last year I made one from Veganomicon (can't remember what it is called) but it had shitake mushrooms in it. It was a hit with everyone. I want to make two different gravies so please tell me what your faves are. I want something amazing!

What would you all suggest? I own just about every cookbook out there so you can just reference it. Please, please share:)

The golden gravy in Real Food Daily is really, really good. And the punk rock chickpea gravy from VWAV is one of my favorite things to eat ever, but more substantial than a typical Thanksgiving gravy.

I pretty much always make the Cashew Gravy from Jae Steele's book Get It Ripe. I just love it.

oh yes, the RFD golden gravy is wonderful! I also like the gravy recipe in The Dirty South cookbook, and Bryanna Clark Grogan's fat free gravy.

tofu-n-sproutz has loads of vegan gravy recipes on her blog this month.

Mmmm, gravy....

I never follow a recipe. I just heat flour, add nooch, whisk in oil until wet, stir in hot almond milk, whisking away the whole time and then flavor. I used to cheat and use Gravy Starter and then shoyu, onion and garlic powders, paprika, salt, pepper, all just tasting and adding as I went.

Recently, I started making gravy and realized I had no Gravy Starter but i DID have a bag of frozen shiitakes in the freezer. I sauted a sweet onion and a bunch of garlic in olive oil, added the 'shrooms and some wine and a few splashes of veggie broth and reduced it down, then stuck it in the magic bullet and then whisked it into the gravy. I think it may very well have been the best I'd ever made (and I make some dern good gravy!). Totally making it for Thanksgiving!

There really are so many good recipes out there for vegan gravies, I just love tinkering with it. It's pretty easy and fool-proof. The only tip that I ever needed to learn was to make sure that the almond (or soy or rice or whatever) milk is hot and added very slowly, whisking as you go to avoid clumps. The rest is...uh....gravy. ;)

I make this every Thanksgiving.

Orange Herb Gravy

2 cups vegetable broth
1 TB soy sauce (or more)
1/2 tsp fresh parsley, minced
1/2 tsp fresh snipped rosemary
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp pepper
2 TB cornstarch mixed with 2 TB water
2 tsp nutritional yeast (optional)
2 TB (or more) frozen orange juice concentrate (like Minute Maid etc..)
2 TB Earth Balance
1 tsp miso paste

Bring the veggie broth to a boil in a medium pot or skillet. Add the soy sauce and herbs. Reduce heat to simmer, then add the cornstarch/water mixture, stirring or whisking constantly to thicken. Allow to simmer for a few minutes until thick. Then add nutritional yeast and orange juice concentrate and stir until the concentrate melts. You may add more if you want a tangier, citrusy flavor. Add the Earth Balance and miso and stir until both are dissolved into the gravy. Simmer a little longer until gravy is hot. Season with more salt or soy sauce if desired.

Same, I just make a roux and add whatever flavors and veggies I think would work best. Sometimes instead of so much butter I'll sub in some vegetable stock.

I make a carmelized onion gravy, adapted from the Barefoot Contessa. It's yummy!

3 TBS Earth Balance
3 TBS canola oil
2 large onions, finely chopped (1/2 cups)
1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
2 cups veggie or un-chicken stock, simmering
1 tablespoon brandy

In a large sauté pan, cook the EB, oil and onions for 15 minutes, until the onions are lightly browned and caramelized. (Don't rush this step!)

Sprinkle the flour into the pan. Add salt and pepper. Whisk into the onions. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the hot stock and brandy, and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, until thickened. Serve.

Oh these all sound lovely! I think I will make a big batch of mashed potatoes for dinner tonight and make a few of these gravies to test on my family:)

The orange and the caramelized onion recipes sound amazing--I think I will have to try those first, yum!
