Vegan biscuits and gravy!

I had the most random craving for a meat and three, as they’re called in the south, my way. No hidden ham hocks or overly salted beans, but good wholesome, my-Granny-June-would-have-approved (albeit dangling cigarette and sugary sweet tea in hand) blue plate special. 🙂 

So, I made crock pot black-eyed peas, cooked with a bay leaf, chopped Vidalia onion, some garlic and hot sauce, shucked-that-day roasted corn on the cob, and biscuits and gravy. It was a beautiful thing. 🙂

It was also a beautiful thing because the actual cook time (not including crock pot) was under 30 minutes.

Homemade vegan whole wheat biscuits and mushroom gravy:


Biscuits 

recipe from Vegan Junk Food by Lane Gold

3 cups whole wheat pastry flour

4.5 tea baking powder

Tea salt

3/4  – 1 cup unsweetened almond milk

3 TBS vegan mayo

Salt and pepper 

Pinch minced onion

Punch Italian seasoning

Sprinkling of dried minced garlic

Sift dry ingredients and mix with wet stuff gently.

 I used a medium ice cream scooper for the size, then shaped into something that resembled a biscuit and baked at 450 for nine minutes.

Meanwhile, the gravy…

Mushroom gravy

1/2 giant Vidalia or sweet onion

3 cloves fresh garlic

Handful of mushrooms

Big gulp of dry white wine

Handful nutritional yeast

Almond milk

Fennel seeds 

Salt and pepper 

Roughly chop the onions, mince the garlic and finely chop the mushrooms. Sauté the mushrooms first on low heat until they grow pale. Add garlic and mushrooms and let them sweat at a higher heat until they begin to stick. Deglaze with the wine and turn the heat down while you stir. Chop or crush the fennel seeds and add. Add the almond milk and nutritional yeast while stirring. The mixture will get bubbly. I pulsed half in the food processor and left half as is. Add almond milk if you want a lighter gravy or nutritional yeast for something more spreadable.

Happy Granny June memories dinner! 🙂
