This easy vegan gravy takes just 15 minutes to make and is full of savory flavor! Perfect for drowning a pile of mashed potatoes.


  • 1 large shallot (1/3 cup minced)
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter or refined coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon whole fennel seeds
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup flour (for gluten-free, use 1 for 1 gluten free flour)
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (or liquid aminos)


  1. Finely mince the shallot.
  2. In a large saucepan over medium heat, warm the olive oil and coconut oil. Add the shallot and cook for 2 minutes until tender. Add the fennel, thyme, and cayenne and cook for 30 seconds over medium heat until fragrant.
  3. Add the flour and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until the shallots turn brown and the color turns golden brown.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium low. Add the vegetable broth and stir until smooth and thickened, about 5 minutes.
  5. Stir in the almond milk, salt and soy sauce. Taste and add additional salt until the flavor pops (we used about 1/2 teaspoon total). Remove from the heat and strain into a clean container. The gravy will continue to thicken as it cools.
