Biscuits and Country Gravy (Vegan)

I'm finding it very easy to veganize recipes.

Dangerously easy.

I bring you vegan biscuits and country gravy.

Don't say I didn't warn you.

Whole Wheat Vegan Biscuits
16 biscuits

1 c. all purpose flour
1 c. whole wheat flour
5 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp whipped earth balance buttery spread
4 tbsp soy cream cheese spread (I use TJ's brand)
1 c. original unsweetened non-dairy milk (I used soy)

Preheat oven to 400F.
In a large bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder and salt.

Drop in earth balance and vegan cream cheese.

Using the tines of a fork, blend in the earth balance and cream cheeze. You could pulse in a large food processor if you have one big enough. But the fork method just takes a minute or so. Work on it until you get the following looking consistency:

Add in milk and mix just until combined.

Turn out onto a floured surface and need briefly - 2-4 times.

Roll out to about 1/2" using your finest kitchen equipment (a cup from ikea= rolling pin, right?)

Cut out even shapes (using more glassware, apparently). 

Place on a lightly sprayed baking sheet.


Bake 12-14 minutes, or until brown and puffed up:

Now, about that gravy.

Country Gravy

about  1 1/2 c. gravy

4 soy breakfast sausage links or 2 patties, or the precrumbled stuff, whatever you like
2 tbsp earth balance whipped buttery spread
2 tbsp all purpose flour
1 1/4 c. original, unsweetened soy milk (warmed)
black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
cayenne and tabasco to taste

Crumble up sausage, set aside.

In a sauce pan over med-high heat, melt earth balance. Whisk in flour and create a vegan roux! This takes about 1 minute.  Whisk continuously, let it slightly toast.

Pour in warmed milk, whisking continuously.

Once thickened (about a minute), reduce heat to med-low and stir in sausage, salt, pepper, hot sauce, cayenne, whatevs.

To serve, split biscuits and top with a pouring of gravy.

Serve with copious amounts of tabasco and fruit because this, my friends, is health food.
