Miso Gravy

Miso Gravy

Making vegan gravy isn’t that hard when you throw some miso into the mix. Its complex salty and earthy tones infuse enough flavour into the gravy that the absence of meat drippings becomes irrelevant. Ever since its introduction in our home, this creamy dressing has been reappearing for holiday dinners regularly and is enjoyed by everyone, vegan or otherwise.
