Amongst the many great aspects of being married to Kate Grass is that she loves comfort food. An additional plus is that she loves cooking comfort food. One more plus on top of the prior plus is that she has figured out how to convert many comfort food recipes into vegan equivalents. In the case of this recipe she did it with biscuits and gravy.
Biscuits & Gravy for Two
3/4 cup biscuit mix
1/4 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
Mix everything up and portion out 4 biscuits on a cooking pan. Bake at 450F for approx 10 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom.
1/2 package Gimme Lean ground sausage
1 tbsp oil for browning
1 tbsp vegan margarine (Earth Balance or Smart Balance)
1 tbsp flour
1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
1 tbsp corn starch
salt and pepper to taste
* Add or adjust milk and flour/corn starch for desired consistency
Brown the sausage in a medium sauce pan leaving whatever sticks to the bottom of the pan. Remove browned sausage to a bowl and add margarine to deglaze the pan. Add flour and stir until a paste or roux forms then slowly add non-dairy milk stiring with a whisk until everything incorporates. Turn up the heat and continue stirring to get all the bits stuck on the bottom of the pan off. Add the corn starch and continue stirring until the gravy is as thick as you want it to be. Add the sausage back and mix together.
Cut biscuits in half and place two on a plate. Cover in the gravy. Sit. Eat. Enjoy.
