Miguel makes delicious vegan biscuits and gravy.
The vegan biscuit recipe that he used is from eHow. It’s important to remember that the margarine should be very cold when it’s combined with the dry ingredients (salt, baking powder, flour). The colder the margarine, the flakier the biscuits. For this reason, it’s best to combine the ingredients with a fork so the warmth of your hands doesn’t mess up the consistency. After combining the margarine, you can add the milk (either soy milk or rice milk is fine). Knead it with your hands, roll it out flat, use the top of a can to cut the biscuits, place them on a cookie sheet (ungreased), stick them in the oven…and then you’re done. They should be ready in 10 – 15 minutes. Check them regularly so they don’t burn on the bottom.
Here is more or less the vegan gravy recipe:
1. Start with a few tablespoons of vegan margarine.
2. Add garlic, onions, peppers, mushrooms (in that order).
3. Add flour to turn into paste (it is important that you add the flour before the liquid if you want a smooth gravy. If you do it the other way around, the flour will make big goey chunks that are very difficult to break down).
4. Add soymilk, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper, and spices (some ideas are coriander, paprika, or sage).
