WHEN TO USE GRAVY

All of these gravies are entirely versatile, but some foods simply call for gravy! Warmed vegetables that are straight from the over are always better with gravy, and many of our main dishes simply evoke that warm and comfortable holiday-type feeling when they are covered with any one of our gravies. Plus, kids love gravy! Typically, gravy is kept for holidays, but we think that gravy should be used at any time. All of the recipes from our vegetarian cookbook are simple to make, entirely good for you, and you can create any one of these gravy recipes in no time. If you’re not sure what to make for dinner tonight, choose one of our main dishes from our vegetarian cookbook and cover it with one of our lovely gravies – you’ll be glad that you did!
