    I used to eat Kentucky Fried Chicken.
    Do you have a vegan recipe for copycat KFC please, Anja?

    How long will the gravy keep in the fridge? I would love to make a large batch and then reheat it when I want to use it. Thanks for the video!

      It will keep for about 5 days.

    Nice gravy recipe – very healthy tasting. I used Miyoko Schinner’s unturkey gravy mix with 1.5 cups of water and no added salt since there’s salt in the unturkey gravy dry mix.

    lovely. Would you share the recipe fir your bean loaf…it looked yummy

    Just an idea – you could probably freeze extra gravy into ice cubes and put in the freeze, take out as many as you want and reheat. I might do this myself to see what happens.

    I will make a big batch then freeze in ice cube trays. Pop them out and keep in freezer in a freezer bag. So handy!

    If you make a slurry by adding some water to the flour. Mix well, than add to pot of liquid. No lumps.

      I was just about to say that! I’ve never heard of adding flour to gravy near the end of the cooking process.

    Can I substitute whole wheat flour or white whole wheat flour?

    I made the Vegan Chickpea & Potato Burger Patties and this gravy. They went together perfectly. Thank you for all your post.

    Oh my gosh, this is delicious! And SO easy! I steamed some diced potatoes and carrots, then poured the gravy over them. It was reminiscent of cooking roast, potatoes, and carrots in a crock pot, cooking all day and how it made its own gravy.. you know that comfort food. This gravy is that taste!! Even smells like it! No kidding!! It was even better the next day. If you have that craving of meat based gravy- this is it! Some hard core vegans might not like that comparison, but for us newbies- it is such a help!

    Plain flour or any other thickening flour of your choice should work.

    Sounds lovely I will be making this. I have found that when I mix the flour with cold water first it doesn’t create those lumps when added o gravy mix. But it has to be more a thick liquid than a paste.

    I wanted to print out this recipe, but the instructions aren’t there. Since I can’t print out the video ( 😀 ) is there a way you can give the instructions so I can have it in print version?

    This was delicious. I used Liquid Bragg Aminos and it was a little too salty but I’ll use reduced sodium ss next time.

    Hi Anja, is it possible to make this a day ahead then reheated when needed?

    • Anja January 9, 2018 at 1:54 pm - Reply

      Yes… if it thickens too much just add a touch of water.

    Will coconut aminos work instead of soy?

    Notice the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of soy sauce and your video put in one cup. Any comments?

    • Anja May 30, 2018 at 7:25 am - Reply

      It is actually 1/4 cup but the audio was cut off a bit in the video.

    When making gravy I always put about 1/2 c of my liquid in my mini blender and add the flour to that and blend well. After heating up the rest of the ingredients in a pot, I add the blended liquid/flour mix slowly to the simmering liquid and stir til thick. Never any lumps!
