    Fanstastic.....left out the mushrooms and used veggie bouillon. Vegetarians loved it and the rest of the guests thought it was better than the "regular" gravy - 11/26/10

    If you don't add the soy sauce, you will need to add a little salt for taste. I also like to add finely chopped parsley. I use basically the same recipe for non-vegetarian gravy by using low sodium/low fat beef or chicken broths. I also will add some ground sage if serving dressing. - 11/25/10

    I haven't made this yet, but I'll probably make my own stock (so easy it's crazy not to--keep bits of onion, carrot and celery you don't use when prepping meals, cover bits with water in pot and bring to boil, simmer 30 minutes, cool, strain and reserve liquid) and use Bragg's Aminos instead of soy. - 11/25/10

  • I would make this again, I did not miss the turkey grave at Thanksgiving time. My sister in law is vegan and it was nice for her to have gravy she could eat with us on the holiday. I enjoyed it - I ate it over mashed potatoes, turkey and stuffing. Very tasty and good. - 12/2/10

  • This is basically what I do every day or so - although I usually use a meat stock.
    It's just so easy.
    Can vegetarians maybe use Yex (yeast extract) where I use Marmite? Though I certainly do not use Marmite if I can use proper stock.
    Love the comment from URHERE - keep your veg offcuts for own st - 11/26/10

  • Love it! I was glad for the comment about Bragg"s -- used about two teaspoons. Also took a little extra time to brown my mushrooms in small batches, and I think that really deepened the flavor. Used half regular white buttons and half criminis. Will definitely use this recipe again! - 11/25/10
