Vegan Southern Biscuits and Gravy

What you need: 

1 package prepared, frozen soy sausage crumbles or patties
Up to 1/4 cup flour (preferably white but whole wheat works too)
Up to 4 cups plain soy milk (full fat or low fat works best but non fat may be used)
Betty Crocker Bisquick Original All-Purpose Baking Mix (use 1/2 cup shortening and water to make biscuits)
lots of pepper (and I mean LOTS)
lots of salt or salt seasoning (I use Lawrys or Johnnys seasoning salt)
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
Up to 1/2 cup vegetable oil

What you do: 

Prepare biscuits according to package directions - preheat oven to bake biscuits but let dough sit, covered (on counter or in refridgerator) while you prepare the gravy. Remember the secret to great biscuits is to use COLD margarine or shortening and to not overmix.
Turn stove on to medium high, and preheat a drizzle of vegetable oil in the pan. When pan is hot, add chopped onions and saute until almost cooked. Add frozen sausage crumbles and continue to saute until cooked. Set aside cooked onion/sausage mixture in a bowl.
In the same pan, reduce heat to medium, and prepare a roux by mixing about 2-3 tablespoons flour with enough vegetable oil to make a heavy paste (about 1-2 tablespoons of oil). Add oil and/or flour to get the correct consistency. Stir and cook the roux for a couple of minutes over the medium heat, then slowly add about a cup of soymilk to the mixture, stirring continuously. You must stir continously to avoid lumps.
Contiune to simmer the gravy over medium heat and add more soy milk as needed (this may require several cups of milk). If you accidentally add too much milk, just add a bit more flour (not more than a teaspoon at a time). Also, the longer you cook the gravy, the more it will reduce and thicken.
As the gravy is simmering and reducing, put the biscuits in the oven and bake according to package instructions.
Add the onion/sausage mixture to the gravy and continue to stir and simmer until the biscuits are done. Add salt and pepper to taste - you will probably find that you'll use more salt and pepper than you expected.
Halve the warm biscuits and pour gravy mixture over them and serve. Yum!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Haven't made the biscuits but the gravy recipe was pretty solid.  I made  a few modifications to it though in making it: 

used nutritional yeast in place of some of the flour

sauteed some rosemary with the sausage/onion mixture

Please know that Bisquick is not vegan.  I emailed the company and then looked around online and it's a much discussed topic.  It is not even vegetarian.  I do have a very good and quick biscuit recipe on my blog, Peaceful Table.  I was hoping Bisquick would be vegan, but no go.

We love to have something like this although we make our own biscuits from scratch but the biggest modification we use (when they're available) is to add radishes to the gravy and make sure they're not soft but not hard either.  Nice little kick there.

Thanks for the recipe.

Wishing you all peace, understanding and harmony.

I love this recipe! It has quickly become one of my favorites if I am seeking comfort food. I don't mind the slight sweetness of the plain Silk soymilk when I use it in this gravy, but I should really try the unsweetened Silk and see if I like it even better! I use the Biscuits Like Mom Never Made recipe from this site and they always turn out well, nice and flaky.

This recipe is a great base for anything you might do with breakfast gravy.  I've used Silk creamer before which results in a sweeter gravy.  As always, I use dried sage from my own garden and it is always a crowd pleaser!

This recipe satisfied my craving for biscuits and gravy tonight. I used plain Silk and the slight sweetness (not totally noticeable) was acceptable to me. I would suggest using a whisk to make the gravy.
