(and it's vegan too) I made it for my friends this past thanksgiving and it was a hit with vegetarians & meat-eaters alike! This recipe is from


* 8 Tbs vegetable oil
* 3 cloves garlic -- squashed and minced
* 2 slices yellow onion -- chopped
* 8 Tbs all-purpose white flour
* 4 tsp nutritional yeast
* 4 Tbs tamari (soy sauce)
* 2 cups water
* 1/2 tsp sage
* 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 5 white mushrooms -- sliced (optional)
* extra flour or cornstarch (optional)


Pour vegetable oil into saucepan. Cook the garlic and onion in oil for about two minutes on medium or medium-low heat, until the onion is tender and translucent.

Add the flour, yeast, and tamari to make a paste.

Add the water gradually, stirring constantly.

Bring the gravy to a boil on medium to medium-high heat, stirring constantly -- the gravy has to boil for it to thicken.

Add pepper. Stir in the sliced mushrooms, if desired. Add salt, if desired.

It sounds like a great recipe, thanks.
As far as the original question, the answer, as usual, is 'it depends'.
What is the gravy made from?
How much are you adding to your plate?
What else are you eating in that meal? during that day?

I love gravy and eat it. If I make it, before serving it I defat it. So far, I've lost 40 lbs.

I hate the look and taste of gravy....IMO, If you need to add gravy, your cooking sucks!
