Vegetarian Gravy?

I know it seems counterintuitive, but I am cooking Thanksgiving dinner for 10 or so, and one of the hosts is a vegetarian. I thought it would be nice to get her some gravy. Anyone seen any place to buy it? Maybe I'll check out the new Whole Foods in Pasadena tonight.

  1. Any whole foods might have it. Look for mushroom gravy. I know Follow Your Heart in Canoga Park usually has it.

    1. How's has vegetarian broth (chicken flavored) have not had it. You could make a gravy with that!

      1. Many stores carry vegetable broth (never tried the "chicken flavored" one though). If you make your own gravy, you'll need more roux or other thickener than you would normally because there's no gelatin in veggie stock. Flavor the gravy with a bunch of sauteed mushrooms and it will be very tasty.

        1. i've probably posted this before, but i really like it:

          my parents and sister actually prefer this gravy even though they are not vegetarian. you may want to go easy on the balsamic vinegar and then add more if you like the taste. i like ot use about half as much.

          1. I have gotten the powdered veggie gravy from Vons. It actually looks and tastes pretty similar to a regular brown gravy
