There's no cooking required to make this rich, flavorful miso gravy. It comes together in the blender in under 5 minutes and is naturally gluten-free!
You are going to love this super easy miso gravy! It's rich and savory, perfect over a roast or mashed potatoes, and it truly only takes minutes to make in the blender. No simmering or whisking needed!
Why no cooking?
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.
How to adjust the thickness
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 find a quarter to a half 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.
How to make miso gravy in 5 minutes
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 do this!
