25. Biscuits and Gravy

Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it. I hope you all remembered to sponsor a turkey at Farm Sanctuary or a similar organization if it was in your budget to do so.

Because of my work schedule, I'll be celebrating over the weekend, so my Thanksgiving feast posts will follow. For now, enjoy reading about biscuits!

About a year ago, when I started really cooking for myself, I spent some time online looking for recipes and ideas. I don't know why Biscuits and Gravy blipped on my radar. I'd never had them pre-vegan days, but for whatever reason, I printed the recipe, and have made it dozens of times since.

One of the best things about it is that it doesn't take all that long to make, but is so deeply satisfying. It pairs wonderfully with tofu scramble or your preferred sausage-style food, and a cup of coffee.

I found the biscuit recipe at Vegan Explosion. The gravy recipe is linked to on the same page, but it leads to a dead end. I've written asking permission to reprint the recipe, and as of this posting have not heard back. I will update if needed. In the meantime, I recomend the Navy Bean Gravy from Vegan Brunch or Tofu Mom's Basic White Gravy a substitutes. Or, if you know of another great biscuit gravy, comment here.
