Delicious Vegetarian Gravy

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Yobittles

Honestly, this tastes better to me than the real thing. And, it is much better for you with less saturated fat and no cholesterol. The flavor will greatly depend on which broth or bouillon you use, so experiment a bit until you find one you like. It is great with mashed or roasted potatoes and goes well with a Tofurkey. This also works really well as a stew base--just add the cornstarch at the end when the veggies are cooked. It is very easy to prepare, and freezes perfectly, so we make huge batches so some is always ready. When you reheat from frozen, either run it through the blender or use a hand blender after thawing to regain a creamy consistency.

Yummy! Great on vegetarian meatballs and mashed potatoes. It is almost like a chicken gravy.
