There’s no cooking required to make this rich, flavorful Miso Gravy. It comes together in the blender in under 5 minutes!
I first developed this Miso Gravy recipe as part of my vegan Thanksgiving wraps. When a week later I found myself using it again, I thought it deserved its own post. It’s so, so easy. And no one needs to know that it only took you 5 minutes!
5-Minute Miso Gravy
The thing about miso is that it’s a probiotic food. That means you don’t want to heat it up more than you have to. Heating it too much kills the beneficial bacteria that makes it healthy.
That’s not a problem with this gravy recipe. You make the whole thing in the blender, no cooking needed at all.
This recipe only has one real variable: the nutritional yeast. Nooch is a great thickener, so if you like a thicker gravy, you can add more by the tablespoon until you achieve the consistency you’re going for.
I found 1/2 cup of nooch to be the sweet spot for my own tastes, but feel free to add a bit more or even start with a bit less, depending on your thickness preferences.
To make the gravy, just put the miso, water, a little olive oil, shallot, and garlic into your blender, and puree until smooth.
See if it’s at a thickness that works for you, then add more nutritional yeast to thicken or water to thin. If you overdo it on the water and things start to taste a bit diluted, add miso, a teaspoon at a time, to bump the flavor back up.
Honestly, I don’t think that such a simple recipe needs more of an introduction, do you? Dust off your blender, and let’s just make some miso gravy!
