Golden Cashew Gravy

Here's another autumnal recipe that I love! This gravy is easy to make and has such a rich depth of flavor. It is perfect to go with comfort foods of autumn. . .mashed potatoes, lentil patties, loaves, and toast. Enjoy!

Golden Cashew Gravy

1/4 c. cashews (well rinsed, raw cashews are dirty)
3 T. cornstarch
1 t. onion granules
1/4 t. garlic granules
1/2 t. salt
3 c. water
1 T. nutritional yeast, optional
1 or 2 T. chicken-style seasoning or to taste*

Whiz in blender. Start with all the ingredients except for part of the water so that the nuts can get creamy. Then add the rest of the water and continue to blend. Place in saucepan. Cook over low hit stirring constantly with a wire whisk until gravy thickens.

Use over patties, potatoes, anywhere that you like gravy!! Super delicious!

*I prefer Bill's Best Chicknish' as a chicken-style seasoning, but McKay's Chicken-style seasoning is delicious as well. Both are available at your local whole foods market or health food store.


  1. This gravy sounds so good, will try it with Sunday dinner.

  2. It's amazing what you can do with cashews. I still remember the whipped cream topping made with cashews.

  3. Sounds delish! I love that wooden sculpture of the rooster.:)
