Vegan Deluxe Biscuits and Gravy

One of our favorite places to eat in Boone NC serves the best vegetarian biscuits and gravy! Mushroom gravy, cheese, tomatoes and onions on top. The combination of the hot gravy, melted cheese, and cold fresh veggies on top is just about perfect. So naturally I set out to create a vegan version of creative spin on a southern staple. Don’t get me wrong, I still love a traditional plate of biscuits and “sausage” gravy, but this version is actually my go to!! So if you love biscuits and gravy ( and if you don’t, please explain this to me, I’m truly confused) then give this version try! It might become your favorite version as well. And if you are ever in Boone NC, stop by the Hobnob!! They know what they are doing there!

Ingredients:

  • 1 batch Fluffy Southern Biscuits

  • 3 cups diced mushrooms

  • 1 small onion

  • 2 teaspoons vegan butter

  • 2 cups water

  • 2 teaspoons low sodium Better Than Bouillon

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • 4 tablespoons flour

  • 1 tablespoons tomato paste

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • pepper to taste

  • optional toppings:

  • diced tomatoes

  • vegan cheddar shreds

  • diced green onions

Instructions:

  1. Bake biscuits according to recipe

  2. In a medium sized skillet, melt 2 teaspoons of butter. Add the onion, garlic, and mushrooms and allow to cook until onions are translucent.

  3. Sprinkle the flour on top of the veggies and let cook for about a minute.

  4. Whisk togher the water, better than bouillon, and tomato paste and pour into pan.

  5. Add the spices and continue whisking until the gravy begins to thicken.

  6. Once gravy has thickened, allow to simmer for a few minutes.

  7. If adding cheddar shreds, place biscuits in an iron skillet or casserole dish. Cover in gravy and sprinkle with cheese. Turn oven to broil and leave the pan in the oven just long enough for the cheese to melt and get bubbly. Do not take your eyes off the biscuits while they are in the oven. They will burn VERY QUICKLY while on broil if you do not watch them.

  8. Once cheese is melted, remove biscuits from the oven, and sprinkle with diced onions and tomatoes to serve.
