Vegan Biscuits and Gravy!

On Sunday night, we went a tad bit crazy. It was a day of baking and cooking. non-stop. We made soyrizo tacos for Breakfast, biscuits and gravy for dinner and carrot cake for dessert!

So, for months, we have talked about vegan biscuits and gravy and how we should make them. It always seemed as if it would be a daunting task. It wasn't and it would have been worth it if it had been daunting. The biscuits were baked to perfection. They had a hint of oregano and satisfied my biscuit eating urge. The mushroom gravy was perfect in consistency and so easy to make. From now on....our Thanksgiving gravy JUST got gourmet because we will always make this recipe.

Then to top it off, we made a vegan carrot cake with fresh ginger.

Basic Baking Powder Biscuits
2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp dried oregano
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup vegan margarine
3/4 cup "milk"
1 tsp apple cider vinegar

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, oregano, and salt. Stir in the margarine, "milk", and vinegar until well blended. Cut dough into 6 even amounts and place into lightly oiled muffin tins; or roll dough out on floured surface and cut with large cookie cutters and place on baking sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick or knife comes out clean. Makes about 6 large biscuits.
