Savory Bean Gravy. Vegan and Oil-free!
Hello beautiful readers! I’ve been absent from your inbox for a few days. It’s good to be back! And I am super excited to share this fabulous and nutritious gravy idea with you. Why I never thought of this before is a mystery to me. It’s such a simple recipe and it’s more delicious than any brown gravy I’ve ever had! PLUS, it’s made with beans for an extra heapin’ helpin’ of nutrients.
Most gravies are loaded with oil and thickened with flour. Forget those health-stealing culprits. All you need is love… I mean BEANS! Sorry. I know I can be corny sometimes. Anyway, without further ado or silliness, here is the recipe…
- 1 cup red beans (pinto, adzuki, kidney or any other red bean will work)
- 1 cup water
- 1 TBS sweet white miso
- 1 TBS Spike salt-free all purpose seasoning
- 1 tsp Bragg Organic Sprinkle (or sub 1 tsp ground thyme)
- 2 tsp dried onion flakes
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 TBS nutritional yeast
- Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
- Warm in a saucepan.
Makes about 2 cups. Enjoy!
