Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!

Vegan Gravy

This recipe comes from Rose Elliot's Vegetarian Cookery and is excellent.

1 onion, diced
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp plain flour
clove of garlic (crushed)
450ml/15 fl oz vegetable stock
1 tsp yeast extract
1 or 2 tbsp soya sauce
freshly ground black pepper

Fry the onion in the oil for 5 mins.

Add the flour and cook for a further 5 to 10 mins until the flour and onion are nut-brown and the onion is soft and slightly pulpy.

Add the garlic then gradually stir in the vegetable stock (or the water from any vegetables you happen to be boiling at the same time). Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 mins.

Add the yeast extract, soya sauce and black pepper. Stir well. Strain if you like, or serve as it is.

As a variation, try adding a diced red pepper, a handful of cashew nuts, about 8 diced button mushrooms and a dash of red wine. Rather than straining the gravy, whizz it in a blender. Yum!
