Fat-Free Vegan Sage Gravy Recipe

If you missed all the excitement yesterday, Amazon is shipping my new cookbook, Everyday Happy Herbivore, early! If you pre-ordered it, you should be getting it 11-28 or 11-29! 

The official release date is still 12-6 -- so that's the day you'll find it in stores and in epub format (i.e. Kindle, Nook) -- but I'm thrilled those who pre-ordered the book are getting it more than a week early! 

I'm also sharing another recipe from my new book on the blog today -- Sage Gravy, which is perfect for Thanksgiving! 

Sage Gravy - makes 1 1/2 cups

Good over greens, mashed potatoes, faux chicken---anything really. This is my latest go-to gravy.

1/2 cup vegetable broth

1/2 cup nondairy milk

1 tbsp rubbed sage (not powdered)

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

2 tbsp white whole wheat flour

1/4 tsp garlic powder (granulated)

1/4 tsp onion powder (granulated)

1/4 tsp liquid smoke

dash paprika

1 lemon wedge (juice of)

pinch salt

black or white pepper

Whisk all ingredients together in a medium pot, taking care to rub the sage between your fingers to break it down into smaller bits, especially if your brand is a little rustic with bigger leaves and stick pieces (pull out those sticks if you can). Squeeze the juice out of your lemon wedge completely, and discard the rind. Bring gravy to near boil over high heat but just before it boils, immediately turn off the heat and remove the pot to a non-hot burner, stirring it. Taste, adding black or white pepper and salt as desired.

Chef's Note: Brown rice flour may be substituted for a gluten-free option.
