How do you make vegan sausage gravy and biscuits?
This homemade dairy free biscuits and gravy recipe comes together in under 30 minutes which means it’s the perfect breakfast meal any day of the week.
To start making this homemade vegan biscuits and gravy, you are going to want to make the biscuits. We highly recommend that you make our homemade dairy free biscuits that are included in the total 30 minute timeframe.
Once you have the biscuits in the oven cooking you can get started on the vegan sausage gravy. Start by melted butter in a large skillet. We love using a cast iron skillet for this meal. Once the butter is melted, add in your vegan sausage. We find it best to break into small pieces. You are then going to brown your sausage, all while crumbling up the mixture to smaller crumbles. After about 5 minutes, you are going to add your dried sage and stir together. The sage gives it a more savory and earthy tones that are typical of a lot of non-vegan breakfast sausages. If you find and use a vegan breakfast sausage that already has sage you can omit this step.
Next, sprinkle half the flour over the sausage and combine. Then do the other half. Mix well until you see no more flour. Then, add the milk, one cup and a time, stirring after each cup. Finally, let cook, stirring frequently, for 10-15 minutes. It will thicken up during this time. Add in salt and pepper to taste.
Depending on the sausage that you use, will really determine the salt you need to add as some prepackaged sausage has a lot of sodium already added to it.
Remove from the heat and serve over the warmed homemade vegan biscuits that you made. Store any leftovers in the fridge.
Where can I buy vegan sausage?
We have found vegan at a variety of stores. Whole Foods and Wegmans, as well as local grocery stores, like Shoprite and Acme. At the local grocery stores, it is in the section where tofu is located, usually in the produce department.
