October greetings! I enjoy this scary month a lot. Thanksgiving in Canada remains in less than 2 weeks, so you understand I needed to can be found in hot with the sheet pan gravy. For my American buddies, consider this early preparation:-RRB-

This is a mushroom-free, flour/refined starch-free choice that’s made nearly completely on a sheet pan. Completely wild! We caramelize a lot of onion, cauliflower, garlic, potato, and herbs, and after that we mix that with miso, actually great veggie stock, and a couple of other flavorings. Obviously, if you’re searching for an excellent mushroom gravy dish, I have one right here.

The preparation is so easy– in line with making a standard pureed veggie soup. The outcome is a somewhat velvety, thick, incredibly flavourful, umami-rich “gravy” that’s best for putting over generally whatever on your vacation plate. Every. Single. Thing. Gravy remains in the side meal classification at vacation meals and I will combat anybody about this.

I understand that cauliflower as a base for gravy appears a bit beyond package, however when it gets that deep caramelization going and you integrate it with all of the other goodness here, it actually works! Likewise, if I have actually discovered anything from food patterns over the previous couple of years, it’s that cauliflower can be definitely anything. Now you can top your cauliflower mash (or harvest veggie mash) with, you thought it, MORE CAULIFLOWER (In the kind of this sheet pan gravy hehe). Still here for this never ever ending veggie transformation.

If you’re searching for more vacation meal-planning motivation, I have actually got all of my finest ones assembled here. Hope everybody is having an excellent week! Stay scary out there.

  • 3-4 drops liquid smoke
  • 3 1/2 cups veggie stock( ideally homemade)


  • Preheat the oven to 425 ° F. Line a big baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cut the onion into 8 wedges and move to the baking sheet. Cut the potato into 1-inch pieces and move to the baking sheet too. Then, include the cauliflower, garlic cloves, avocado oil, poultry spices, and great deals of salt and pepper to the baking sheet. Toss the veggies completely to coat in the spices. Separating the wedges of onion to expose more edges.
  • Move the veggies into the oven and roast for 50 minutes (yes, 50 minutes), turning and stirring them at the middle. You desire deep caramelization and browning on all the edges.
  • Once the veggies are adequately roasted and somewhat cooled, move them to an upright, high speed mixer. To the mixer, include the miso, drained pipes cashews, balsamic vinegar, liquid smoke, and veggie stock. Gradually bring the speed of the mixer as much as high and mix up until your gravy is totally smooth. If you’re discovering it to be too thick, include more veggie stock up until you attain a pourable, however still thick, consistency.
  • Examine the gravy for spices at this moment. If it requires more salt, vinegar, pepper, miso, or perhaps more poultry spices to match your taste, change appropriately.

  • It is essential to get as much caramelization as you can on the veggies when they’re roasting. It’s what takes this dish from soup-esque right on over to bonafide gravy vibes.
  • The liquid smoke IS optional, however I ‘d actually advise seeking it out for this dish and a lot of other fantastic things that you can include it to. I can’t make a pot of beans without it now:-RRB-
  • I utilized an abundant homemade veggie stock for this and I ‘d advise that you do the very same. My go-to dish can be discovered here.
  • If mushroom gravy is your thing, I have an excellent dish here.

    Any ideas on prepping this ahead of time? As much as the puréed phase and after that reheating it? Reply

    • Laura

      Hey Betsy,
      Yes you might absolutely do that! This dish is basically a really abundant pureed soup, so it reheats actually well. You will likely require to include extra veggie stock to get it to the texture you desire given that the potato will thicken things up a bit.

    O.M.G. I need to attempt. Have you attempted freezing it yet? How does it taste as soon as thawed. I wish to know if I can make this a couple of days prior to a supper celebration. I hope so! Looks incredible as constantly!!! Reply

    • Laura

      Hey Emily,
      I have actually not attempted freezing this dish. If you just require to make it up a couple of days out, this dish would be great kept in the fridge in a sealed container. Simply reheat it in a pan with a couple of additional splashes of veggie broth as it will absolutely thicken up as it cools. I can’t picture freezing being bothersome given that this is basically a really abundant variation of a pureed soup dish. However once again, can not speak with the success of this given that I have actually refrained from doing it myself.

    Exists an alternative to the cashews? My child has a cashew allergic reaction, so I can’t prepare with them. Reply

    • Laura

      Hey Nicola,
      Is it cashews or nuts in basic? If it’s simply cashews, you might attempt pine nuts, macadamia nuts or perhaps skinned and sliced almonds. If your child has a basic nut allergic reaction, I would advise cutting the veggie broth back by about 1/4 cup and utilizing a 1/2 cup of unsweetened non-dairy creamer.

    This is such a distinct take on vegan gravy! Difficult to think the absence of mushrooms;-RRB- Reply

    Oh wow, Laura: how dazzling. Plainly this is the season when we change out our normal stovetop onion or mushroom gravy! I can’t assist however ask whether the mixer does not make the potato gluey? You understand what I imply with processing/blending potatoes … Is it ok here due to the fact that there suffices liquid + other things? (Likewise, what herbs would we utilize to replacement for a ready-made poultry spices mix? … sage, thyme …?) Reply

    • Laura

      Hey Sherry!
      I would state that the potato makes the gravy rather thick, however not gluey. You simply need to beware to not over-blend it. Likewise, as soon as you include the mixed gravy back to the pot, you’ll likely require to include more veggie stock to thin it out and get it pourable. And poultry spices is mainly sage and thyme with a little rosemary and a pinch of nutmeg and white pepper generally.

        Thanks for your valuable action, Laura!—- I believed I ‘d wait to address up until we had actually attempted this, and now I can state for sure, it’s outstanding. We had a wide variety of fresh herbs, so we roasted the veg with entire stems of rosemary and thyme and huge bay leaves (disposed of after), then included fresh sage and savoury (yes!) to the mixer. I make sure I never ever would have thought that standard poultry spices included nutmeg, so thanks for the idea—- we included a couple of gratings of that, too. The consistency was fantastic, not too thick at all. And gladly, we have a lot remaining. I’m all of a sudden questioning if I require to make biscuits or something …
