Vegan mash & gravy is a vegan alternative to the traditional British dish of mashed potatoes and gravy. Mashed potatoes are mixed with vegan butter or margarine, vegetable stock, garlic, salt, pepper, and sometimes nutmeg. The mixture is heated in a pan until it can be mashed with a potato masher or whisked smooth. Vegan milk (soy milk) or cream (soy cream) are then added to make it creamy.
Vegan mash & gravy can be served as an accompaniment to roast dinners or other dishes that would traditionally be served with mashed potatoes. It can also be eaten on its own as a main dish if you’re feeling particularly hungry!
What is gravy?
Gravy is traditionally made by fat from meat or butter mixed with flour and whisked with stock until a velvety smooth sauce is made. We are gonna simplify this tedious process by using “slurry” a thickener made of water/stock and cornstarch/potato starch. Our gravy will just be made by sautéing some onions, mixing some stock, tamari and slurry. This method is surprisingly easy but you end up with a really exquisite and velvety sauce.
