Vegan Biscuits and Gravy<br><br>
Category: Breakfast<br><br><br><br>
Suitable for a: vegan diet<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Ingredients:<br><br>
------------------------------------------------------<br><br><br><br>
This is not the type of recipe you really need measurements for, just eyeball it.<br><br>
1 Tube Gimme Lean Sausage<br><br>
Bisquick<br><br>
Soymilk<br><br>
3-4 Tablespoons Earth Balance Margarine<br><br>
2-3 Cups Plain Soy Milk<br><br>
Salt and Pepper to taste<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Instructions:<br><br>
------------------------------------------------------<br><br><br><br>
Follow the directions for making biscuits on the back of the Bisquik box but use soy milk instead of regular milk.<br><br><br><br>
While the biscuits are baking, start the gravy.<br><br><br><br>
Fry the tube of Gimme Lean Sausage in a pan and set to the side.<br><br><br><br>
In a large sauce pan, melt about 3-4 tablespoons of margarine. Add an equivalent amount of flour to the melted margarine and allow the mixture to cook for two minutes or so. Add 2-3 cups plain soymilk and salt and pepper (you can also add a little bit of garlic salt, for more flavor). Let mixture come to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. When mixture becomes thick, add the sausage.<br><br>
*If the mixture doesn't thicken, you can add more flour, and if it is too thick, add more soymilk.<br><br><br><br>
Take some biscuits, put them on your plate and drench them in delicious gravy. Enjoy!<br><br><br><br><br><br>

I make something similar this. It's great for brunch on a cold weekend morning. I like to saute some finely chopped onion and crushed garlic in the margarine before I add the flour. I also add little ground sage, fennel seed and freshly ground black pepper to the gravy when I add the soymilk.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:">

ETA: Sooo. I attempted this. They ended up looking and tasting suspiciously like pancakes. I used a generic brand of pancake mix. I need a chef hehe.. Everything I make tastes not-good. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"> Well.. the pancakes were fine. Just not very biscuity.

I would love to have an update about the rice milk. That's what I buy too.

Bisquick is not the same as pancake mix and substituting pancake mix where the original recipe says "Bisquick" will give different results. Zometimes good, sometimes not, depending on other factors...<br><br><br><br>
If "everything" you make turns out "not-so-good" than by all means follow the recipe <i>exactly</i>! I think with the recipes available today, everyone has the ability to be an accceptable cook and turn out decent recipes... Just keep trying.

I'm so glad you posted this! I have been wondering about making gravy with some kind of non-cow milk. I'm from West Virginia and biscuits and gravy is a staple here, it's not just food, it's our culture. LOL We'd already been making gravy with fake sausage but real milk and loved it. Now I'm trying to cut down on milk and was worrying about what to do about my beloved milk gravy. I'm definitely going to try it!

How weird that I log on today and this is the most recent thread here. I made biscuits and gravy yesterday using a dif biscuit recipe. (how it all vegan book) I left them in too long (oven temp was off - long story) and "followed" my mom's gravy recipe. I used a veg boullion cube instead of soy milk (my smilk was sweetened - I hate it that way, but its all they have in bulk at Costco) and a T of EB margarine. Then I added a few small handfuls of flour and stirred the crap out of it with a fork. Added a dash of cayenne, poured atop my rock-hard biscuits and yum! Even my husband liked the gravy - and he doesnt even like his MOTHER'S! Then only things I would do differently next time would be to maybe use a different brand of boullion cube. It was pretty salty and Im not a salty kinda person. Also, I would make sure the oven temp is right before putting the biscuits in to cook.

My mom used to make the omni version of this for breakfast on sundays and before I was a veg I LOVED IT!!! I've never even thought to try to make a veggie version of this, for some reason I thought it wasn't possible. I also didn't realize that the gravy was so simple to make. It turned out so good, even my wife (who doesn't usually like fake meat) liked it. I'll be making this more often. Thanks for the recipe.

I make gravies with rice milk all the time. I've heard other people only have good luck cooking with soy, but I hate it so I never use it and I've never had a problem with any other milk. I even use almond milk sometimes, it adds an interesting flavor to a lot of foods.

I made this! It was real comfort food! I used that heart healthy biquick. It's a little higher in fat than I usually do but really good on this cold morning. Thanks!

I didn't think Bisquick was considered vegan.</div>
</div>
<br><br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:"> Yep, it is and I am totally stoked about that. I buy those huge boxes of it you can get at a Costco or a Sams Club. Very versitile stuff, it's practically a staple.

I made this for friends and my bf saturday morning. I was out of soy milk, so I actually used coconut milk. Which made a very creamy gravy. I could taste the coconut flavor, but it didn't taste bad, and when I asked my friends if they noticed they all just shrugged and said it was good.

Considering the fact what U.S. Americans call 'cookies' are usually called 'biscuits' in the U.K. and certainly don't taste nice with gravy, could someone please explain....<br><br><br><br>
...what on earth is a biscuit in the U.S.A.?<br><br><br><br>
P.S. 1 Tube Gimme Lean Sausage sounds like real sausage - how do you know it's not?

Compared to a dinner roll, a "not" sweet bread, soft, dry-like texture.

the tube "Gimme Lean Sausage" brand is LightLife; that's how you will know, because they dont produce "real" meat.</div>
</div>
<br><br><br>
But how do you know they don't produce milk.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
And that biscuit explanation confused me. And what the heck is a dinner roll?
