Found this recipe on a fitness website a few weeks ago and it was great with vegan "meat" loaf and mashed potatoes. I added portabella mushrooms to it as well. I'm planning on using this recipe for thanksgiving this year.

Yum! I served this over jasmine rice and loved it! I wasn't sure it needed both flour and cornstarch, but it turned out great. I only had garlic powder, so added a little salt. Thanks! Made for Pick A Chef(PAC) event in the contests/events forum. Keep those recipes coming! :)

  1. Heat the margarine in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Sauté the onion for a couple of minutes, or until transparent.
  3. Add the flour and garlic salt and sauté this mixture for about five to ten more minutes.
  4. Add in the vegetable broth and cornstarch, making sure to stir well to prevent lumps.
  5. Bring this to a boil and once you have done this you want to reduce to a simmer and continue cooking, stirring frequently.
  6. Add in the nutritional yeast and soy sauce and reduce the heat even further, cooking for just a few more minutes.
