Basic Gravy

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time5 mins
Servings: 1 cups


  • 3 scant tablespoons Earth Balance Spread Original
  • 3 scant tablespoons flour
  • 1 ½ cups boullion broth or homemade vegetable stock. Depending on the need, use faux chicken, faux beef, or vegetable flavored boullion.
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • Salt to taste. Bullion tends to be salty so be careful when adding salt to a bullion-based gravy.
  • ½ teaspoon of dried marjoram leaves


  • Melt Earth Balance in saucepan. Stir in flour a little at a time to avoid lumps. Stir in boullion broth, gradually. The mixture should be smooth.
  • Add rest of ingredients and bring to a boil. Stirring constantly, simmer for about a minute. Serve hot.

Hope you enjoy this easy vegan recipe!


If you are using boullion cubes to make your veggie boullion, add salt sparingly.  Some brands of  boullion cubes are saltier than others.  You’ll need to try this recipe with your specific brand, so it’s best to practice making this recipe once before your holiday dinner.
