Vegan Gravy Recipe FAQs

How to fix gravy that is too thick?

If your vegan sausage gravy ends up too thick, stir in a few tablespoons of warm water to thin it out. Don’t forget to taste and adjust the seasonings as needed after adding water!

What can I use to thicken my sausage gravy?

This sausage gravy will thicken as it sits, so give it some time before serving. You can also simmer it for longer or add more flour.

What can I replace tempeh with?

Besides tempeh, you can make a meat-free sausage mixture with TVP, vegan meat crumbles, chopped cauliflower, mushrooms, and walnuts!

Which of the non-dairy milks is best for vegan gravy?

We used almond milk, but if you want a nice, thick gravy, use cashew milk. Oat milk or soy milk can also substitute for cashew or almond milk. 

Can you freeze vegan sausage gravy?

Yes. After cooling, transfer the gravy to a freezer-safe container and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw and reheat over medium heat, adding water or non-dairy milk to adjust its consistency.
