Herb Gravy (Vegan, Gluten-Free, Oil-Free)

Yield 2 1/4 cups

A simple, herb gravy made from healthy, whole-food ingredients



  1. Over medium-low heat, lightly toast flour in a dry pan for about 5 to 8 minutes or until flour becomes very lightly golden. Stir often to ensure even toasting. Set aside to cool.
  2. Place cashews and 1 cup water in blender. Blend until smooth.
  3. Add flour and remaining 1 1/4 cups of water and blend until smooth.
  4. Pour mixture into a saucepan. Whisk in salt and herbs.
  5. Heat over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until gravy comes to a boil and is thickened.  I use a heat-proof spatula for this.

Serve hot.


This recipe makes a thick gravy. If you prefer a thinner gravy, increase water amount by 1/4 cup.

Make Ahead Tip:

Gravy may be made ahead and refrigerated. It will thicken slightly more when refrigerated. To reheat, place in a saucepan, add a couple tablespoons of water, whisk to combine and then heat slowly, stirring occasionally, until hot.

This gravy can be frozen. When ready to serve, place thawed or partially-thawed gravy in a saucepan and heat over medium heat. Whisk gravy often while heating.
