Vegan Biscuits and Gravy

We all have those recipes that pull you back to childhood, right? Most of my family grew up in the country and biscuits and gravy was a staple breakfast food on the weekend. I was appalled to find out some of my “city folk” friends had no clue what I meant by biscuits and gravy. A common response was “you put turkey gravy on your biscuit and eat it for breakfast”. Bless your soul and all your vital organs, no…BUT I will smother a buttery biscuit in some homemade sausage gravy and eat it until my stomach and esophagus are at full capacity.

During my vegan days, I decided to take a crack at making vegan biscuits and gravy because I was just missing the fat and salt on a Sunday. Slowly, overtime, I adjusted my recipe for the gravy and I believe I have finally mastered it.

I flip flop on what kind of biscuits I use. Sometimes I am craving flaky biscuits you can peel layer by layer and other times I want a dense biscuit that will hold its own against the gravy. And other times….I just eat the gravy (shhhhh).

Recipe: About 4-5 Servings

1 Package Lightlife Gimme Lean Meatless Veggie Sausage
1/2 Jalapeno
1/2 Medium Onion, Diced
3 Cloves of Garlic
2 Tablespoons Earth Balance Vegan Butter
1-3 Tablespoons Flour
2-3 Cups Original Soy Milk
Salt + Pepper (To Taste)
Oregano (To Taste)

Served over biscuits.

  1. Combine jalapeno, onion, oregano and garlic in a skillet with a small amount of butter. Place over medium heat until onions are tender.
  2. Add veggie sausage and heat until lightly browned.
  3. Melt Vegan Butter into sausage and then add enough flour to coat the sausage. Heat for about 2 minutes.
  4. Slowly add soy milk into sausage mixture while continuously stirring. Over medium-low heat bring mixture to a simmer and cook until thickened. Add seasoning.
  5. Remove from heat, pour over biscuits, and enjoy!
