One of my favorite dishes back when I was a meat eater was biscuits and gravy, and it was one of the last things that I gave up on my journey towards vegetarianism. Recently I decided to try to make a vegan version, and after several attempts, I am quite happy with the results.

Ingredients Directions

    228

    • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
    • 1 cup all purpose flour
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 cup shortening I use Spectrum, non-hydgrogenated palm oil
    • 7/8 cup soy milk

    232

    • 6 tablespoons canola oil
    • 3 cups
    • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
    • 1 package Morningstar sausage crumbles
    • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
    • fresh ground black pepper

    Preheat oven to 450°F. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender or two knives. Stir in just enough soymilk to form a soft dough. Do not overmix. Place the dough on a lighlty floured board and knead 3 or 4 times only. Roll the dough out to a thickness of 1/2 inch. Cut with a 2-inch round cookie cutter (or small drinking glass). Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
    For the Gravy, heat oil in a non-non-stick pan for 2 minutes. Add flour and stir quickly with an egg beater. Add 1-2 cups soymilk and continue stirring for 2-3 minutes. Add sausage crumbles and spices. Add more soymilk if necessary to achieve desired thickness.
