  • Add tahini, soy sauce, maple syrup, vegetable broth, and spices. Whisk together to combine.
  • Bring to a boil, whisking consistently so it doesn't burn. Remove from heat. If gravy is too thick add a touch more vegetable broth until desired consistency is reached. Serve warm!



Tips for Making Vegan Gravy
  • Whisk your ingredients together, and remove from heat when it starts to bubble.
  • Gravy will thicken as it sits. If you like a thinner consistency, whisk in a touch more vegetable broth until you reach your desired consistency.
  • If you have fresh herbs, you can use those in place of the dried herbs, but you will want to double the amount you use. Instead of ½ teaspoon of dried thyme, use 1 teaspoon of fresh thyme. Fresh herbs are less fragrant than dried herbs.
  • Make in advance and freeze. If your Thanksgiving day is packed with making other recipes, you can make this recipe in advance and either freeze or refrigerate it. Then reheat when you're ready to serve dinner!
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. 
  • Freeze for up to 2-3 months.
