Bowl of gravy, chicken cutlet topped with gravy, and two chocolate cookies
Salsas, Sauces, Spreads & Seasonings

A Breakfast Favorite

This rich and savory morning entrée is easy to prepare and eliminates all the heavy fats and meat found in traditional gravies. It really hits the spot on a cold winter day served over whole grain biscuits or even a nice fat slice of whole wheat toast. When I make biscuits, I like to prepare a double batch and keep some on hand in the freezer for meals like this. Served over a baked potato with a big salad, this entrée makes a great lunch.

Prep Instructions

  • Yield: 8 (½ cup) servings
  • Prep Time: 5-10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 15-20 minutes

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/3 cup flour, your choice
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 tablespoon Chicken-Style Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional flakes
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 1/2 package Gimme Lean Breakfast Sausage or vegan sausage of your choice


  1. Combine all but the hot water and breakfast sausage in a blender, and blend until nuts are creamed.
  2. Add the hot water to the blender, blending briefly to release any remaining sauce. Pour into a 2-quart pot; cook and stir over medium heat until thickened.
  3. Crumble sausage into the gravy; cover and simmer 5 minutes to heat through, stirring as needed. If sausage clumps remain too large, break them up with a potato masher.
  4. Serve over biscuits or toast.
