    Charmed's Note:

    A nicely browned roux and kosher broth mix is my secret to rich vegetarian gravy. If you use olive oil or non-dairy margarine, this gravy would also be acceptable in a vegan diet.

    1. 1
      Boil the water and add the 2 tsp.
    2. 2
      of broth mix.
    3. 3
      Stir to dissolve and set aside.
    4. 4
      Heat the butter, margarine or oil in a small saucepan with the onions and saute until the onions just barely begin to brown.
    5. 5
      (Add the mushrooms with the onions if using) Add the flour and with a whisk, stir until you get a smooth paste and keep whisking and stirring constantly until the mixture turns a nice light to medium golden brown.
    6. 6
      Pour in the broth and whisk vigorously until the flour mixture is dissolved and the mixture is smooth.
    7. 7
      Then continue cooking and stirring and whisking very often until the mixture starts to bubble and becomes thick, at which point you should be stirring pretty much constantly.
    8. 8
      Serve over whatever you like.
    9. 9
      This works just as well with or without the mushrooms.
    10. 10
      Depends on your personal taste.
    11. 11
      NOTE: Kosher broth mix is usually sold as a powder in jars in the kosher food section of the supermarket.
    12. 12
      Two popular brands are Carmel Kosher and Manischewitz; None of them contain any animal products, even the beef and chicken flavors.
    13. 13
      They are even vegan (I checked the ingredients with a vegan website).

      I used this for Thanksgiving. And everyone one loved it! Super easy. I didn't have gravy master and i used vegetable broth mix. Also i added about 1/4 of white wine grated garlic and soy sauce (very little) and a little cream. Very good!

      I've been a veggie for 7 years now, and the only thing I've missed is poutine. So one night my boyfriend and I decided to ty this gravy and make poutine. He's not a veggie, but loved it and would make it again on his own. I thought it was fabulous! YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)
