Cashew Nut Gravy

10 mins
Serves 2 cups
Savoury pancakes

Everyone’s got to have gravy! Here’s a very tasty gluten-free vegan gravy recipe.

Cashews thicken the gravy and add a slight sweetness, as well as adding protein.


  • 2 cups hot water
  • 2 Tbs Braggs Liquid Aminos or GF Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tbs cornflour
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp savoury yeast
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup cashews (raw or roasted)


  1. Put all ingredients, except the cashews, into a saucepan and heat.
  2. Grind cashews in a coffee grinder and stir into mixture in saucepan.
  3. Cook until thickened.
  4. Alternatively, put all ingredients except one cup of water into a blender and blend until smooth (approximately 5 minutes). Put in pot with second cup of water and heat until thickened.
