Is Gravy Vegan?
Whether you’re liberally pouring it over a nut roast, mushroom wellington or fluffy and crispy potatoes, the UK can’t get enough of it! But is gravy vegan?
Gravy is a traditional saucy and savoury accompaniment to roast dinners (or on top of a portion of chips if that’s your thing). It’s generally made from some kind of stock, vegetable or meat, with the addition of seasonings, onions or garlic, flour to thicken it and even wine or marmite sometimes.
Everyone has their own recipe or method when it comes to gravy – it can even become somewhat of a guarded secret!
Is gravy vegan?
Gravy can indeed be vegan and in our opinion, all the best ones are!
If you’re plant-based and looking for a suitable shop-bought gravy then always check the ingredients and avoid any containing meat or animal products.
Our favourite vegan gravy
We love this rich red onion gravy recipe from one of our Development Chefs, Iona. It’s the perfect accompaniment to any warming and hearty roast dinner.
Don’t feel like making your gravy from scratch? Check out our favourite vegan supermarket gravies that are just as good as the homemade stuff.
