These vegan biscuits and gravy are perfect. They are as decadent and delicious as the real thing. In addition to that, I guarantee you they are easier to make than your might expect. Skip the canned biscuits. Trust me; you won’t be disappointed.
What’s in the biscuits
- All purpose flour- You can definitely also use whole wheat flour or 1:1 gluten free flour.
- Vegan butter- I use the earth balance butter that comes in sticks because it is easiest to cut into cubes.
- Plant milk- Soy milk is always my favorite in cooking and baking because of the creaminess, but any plant milk will work just fine.
- Nutritional yeast-This is totally optional, but adds a nice cheesy flavor that I think suits the biscuits well.
- Baking powder
How to make biscuits
- The key to biscuits is to cube your butter and gradually cut it into the flour. This ensures the flaky, crumbly texture essential to biscuits. Make sure your butter is nice and cold as well. Additionally, cut the butter into the flour, you can use a pastry cutter or a fork. Once you’re done, the dough will resemble very course crumbs. Don’t worry about it fully coming together just yet.
- Once the dough has a crumbly, course texture, resembling thick crumbs, you will add milk until it comes together into a ball. After this, it should be only very slightly sticky.
- Next, form four biscuit-shaped balls with the dough. They don’t have to be perfect; just make sure they are even in size. These biscuits to not require any fancy tools such as a biscuit cutter-they come together perfectly just using our hands.
- Lastly, place them in the oven for about 17 minutes and you’re all set!
What’s in the gravy
- Impossible sausage- This is my favorite vegan sausage for this purpose. It is the most realistic.
- Plant milk- Again, I use soy milk. Any milk will work, but when it comes to gravy, the creamier the better.
- Flour- Any type of flour will work, and you can also use corn starch
- Better than bouillon- I love using better than bouillon for the base as it gives this gravy more depth, but any kind of broth will work just fine.
- Vegan butter-you can use oil or just broth instead of this-the flour with the milk is thick enough. The butter simply adds a touch of richness to this gravy.
How to make gravy
- Place all of your ingredients in a warm saucepan. I generally do medium-high heat. First melt the butter, then add the flour and mix it together. Once the flour and butter come together, add the rest of your ingredients. Bring the chili to a simmer. Once it is simmering, lower the heat to medium-low and let it thicken for about 10 minutes.
- Finally, place your gravy on top of your biscuits and serve!
