  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • knife set
  • wooden spoon
  • small pot


  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 vegetarian bouillon cube
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • cup of diced yellow onion
  • cup of vegan sausage crumbles
  • 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Start by either boiling or microwaving the water and bouillon cube until it's a well-combined broth, then set it aside.
  • In a small pot over medium heat, add the vegetable oil, onions, and vegan sausage and saute until the onions become translucent and tender. Lower to a simmer, add the flour and stir until your roux has a smooth consistency.
  • Add the broth, salt, and pepper, and stir over low heat until it thickens.


  • If the gravy is too thick: I recommend adding the dairy-free milk of your choice, just a splash at a time, until you reach your desired consistency.
  • For a lighter-colored gravy: Use less water and add non-dairy milk (cashew milk, oat milk, soy milk, etc.) instead.
  • To avoid lumpy gravy: Slowly add in the veg broth, constantly whisking as you do.
