Vegetarian Gravy with Fresh Herbs

User Rating 4 Star Rating (1 Review)


This basic vegetarian and vegan gravy recipe uses fresh herbs, including sage and parsley, to get lots of flavor. You'll need a good gravy to go with a vegetarian or vegan lentil loaf recipe, mashed potatoes, and of course, with Tofurky on your vegetarian Thanksgiving!


  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp fresh parsley, minced
  • 1/2 tsp fresh sage, minced
  • 1/4 tsp thyme
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch, dissolved in 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tsp nutritional yeast (optional)


Bring the vegetable broth to a simmer in a medium pot or large skillet. Add the soy sauce and herbs. Reduce heat to a simmer, then slowly add the cornstarch and water mixture, stirring constantly to thicken.

Allow to simmer for a few minutes, until thick, and add nutritional yeast if desired.

Made this today for my vegetarian Thanksgiving. Great taste and consistency. Was concerned when preparing it because it looked ""lumpy."" The final product was fine. Thanks!
