Whipped potatoes wouldn't be the same without a silky, savory, flavorful gravy. This is the gravy you want. Trust me. It's divine!
Here's what you need:
2 cups hot water
4 teaspoons Better Than Bouillon No Chicken Base
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons vegan butter
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup non-dairy milk
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon sage
1/8 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon parsley
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Stir together the hot water and Better Than Bouillon to create a broth and set it aside.
Heat a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Stir together the oil and butter until melted. Add the flour, and whisk gently to create a roux. Continue to gently whisk until the flour turns lightly golden.
Slowly begin to pour in the broth mixture, whisking continuously.
Next, add the milk, and continue whisking until the gravy bubbles and thickens.
Stir in the garlic powder and the herbs.
Lastly, season to taste with salt and pepper.
