The standard recipe for The Grit's yeast gravy has soy milk rather than almond milk, and one cup of margarine instead of the two oils. The change in fat does effect the taste, but this is good either way. Otherwise, this is the classic from Athens, GA's The Grit restaurant, beloved by all and particularly cherished by vegans. I often substitute olive oil and use reduced sodium soy sauce to reduce sodium. I also often leave out the Worchestershire sauce. I generally make a batch and use it in several dishes, to spread the delicious flavor and reduce the impact of the high fat content.

Recipe Ingredients for Grit Yeast Gravy

1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup canola oil
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup nutritional yeast
2 cups regular almond milk
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 3/4 cup hot water
2 T Worcestershire sauce (vegan)

Recipe Directions for Grit Yeast Gravy

  1. Melt margarine. Stir in flour and yeast until blended and continue to heat roux until mixture begins to bubble. Whisk continuously for 4 minutes.

  2. Continue rapid, thorough whisking and add soy milk gradually. The mixture will quickly become thick and custard-like. Combine soy sauce, water, and worcestershire sauce and add to gravy gradually. Blend well after each addition and do not add so rapidly that gravy gets thin. If the gravy is too thin, continued cooking will thicken it.
