Good Gravy

2 quarts veggie broth (I use Imagine No-Chicken)
1/3 cup white wine
1/3 cup Bragg Liquid Aminos (or salt to taste, about 2 tsp)
2 Tbsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp dried basil (may also use chopped fresh)
1/2 tsp dried sage
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tsp black pepper

Have ready:
1 cup corn starch (may also use flour, double the amount)
1 cup cold water or broth (if using flour, double the liquid)

Instructions:
Combine all ingredients, except cornstarch (or flour) and cold water (or broth), in a 4 qt pot. Cover and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Just before serving, bring liquid back to a boil, put cornstarch and water into a shaker container with a right fitting lid and shake until well blended. While stirring liquid with a wire whisk, pour the cornstarch water into the hot liquid, whisking constantly until gravy is thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat and serve over potatoes, stuffing biscuits, Tofurkey, baked or fried tofu slices, etc.

Store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container.

I suggest you cut the recipe in half or 4th, if you don't think you'll be using it within a few days. It doesn't freeze well.

Vanilla Cake/Cupcakes

2 cups Organic White Flour, unbleached and un-enriched
1 1/3 cups Organic Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/4 cups natural or raw sugar, or Sucanant (Sucanant will make cake darker color)
2 tsp. baking soda (NOT BAKING POWDER)
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 3/4 cups water
1/2 cup high oleic safflower oil, expeller pressed (high oleic, means high heat, is best, but can use other oil)
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredients. Whisk in remaining ingredients
until well blended. Pour into an oil sprayed 8x8 or 9x9 inch, baking pan. Bake for
30 - 40 minutes. When cake is done the top will spring back when lightly tapped
with fingertips. Cool and frost. Double the recipe to a make 9x13 cake.
Bake cupcakes 20 - 25 minutes. Makes about dozen cupcakes.

I think the recipe idea is great. We should try to get some of the recipes from Gentle Thanksgiving. Everything was so fabulous. Let's put out a request on our e-mail list for great vegan dishes that have been made.

Hi Linda, the Gentle thanksgiving was with Boulder and Beyond Vegan MeetUp so it would need to be done on their message boards, because all of their members aren't members of this group. If you will start one on there and get people to post, I would be happy to copy it over to our boards. Thank you! PS. I don't even remember what I made! confused I'll have to think about it!
