In my opinion, there is nothing better than a bowl full of mashed or roasted potatoes with creamy gravy poured graciously all over the top.

If it’s EASY vegan gravy that can be made in minutes with only a handful of ingredients, I’m over the moon about it!

I love gravy anytime and already have an easy Brown Gravy recipe that is fabulous, but sometimes we like to have a golden more chicken-tasting gravy like my grandma used to make.

Occasionally, I like to make Crispy Baked Tofu in my oven or air fryer, and it’s absolutely delicious drizzled with gravy. The marinade used for it is so flavorful that I always save it and turn it into a golden gravy to top the baked tofu with, and that’s where this recipe came from.

The marinade gravy is so good, it deserves its own recipe spot on this website because it can go with much more than just my baked tofu. Perfect for holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas with vegan roast and other holiday dishes.

Whatever you end up serving it on, you’ll be amazed at how delicious it is. I’m sure there are many more dishes that could use a little vegan gravy that has a chicken-flavor.

How to make vegan gravy

This is a super-simple recipe to make that doesn’t require any dicing, chopping, or sauteeing to get it done.

The ingredients used are some that most of us already keep on hand like soy sauce, onion and garlic powder, nutritional yeast flakes, and poultry seasoning.

What is poutry seasoning?

If you aren’t already familiar with poultry seasoning, that needs to change right here, right now. Do not panic. Poultry seasoning does not contain any poultry. It’s simply dry herbs that are commonly used to season chicken like sage, thyme, celery seed, etc. It’s an amazing secret ingredient that can be used in many other recipes to add that chicken flavor.

Just whisk together the water and 7 simple ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl, and place in the microwave for about 2-minutes, stirring at the halfway mark.

One of the ingredients needs to be a thickener of some sort, and you can use flour, cornstarch, or arrowroot powder. Personally, I like to use arrowroot powder because it doesn’t clump nearly as much and it’s so easy to use, but you can use any type preferred.

The gravy will thicken as it heats. If it doesn’t get as thick as you would like, add 30 seconds to the microwave time. And, if it gets too thick, add a tablespoon of water and whisk together well.

It is really easy to adjust to the consistency desired. Just remember that it will continue to thicken for up to about one minute after cooking.
