Cauliflower is the key to making this perfectly creamy breakfast gravy.  Add some vegan sausage and drench on top of  fluffy biscuits, for comfort food bliss. 



Vegan Sausage Gravy

  • 2 cups steamed cauliflower florets
  • 2 cups water, plus additional if needed
  • 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 pounds Easy Homemade Breakfast Sausage (recipe in book) or use Hilary’s Spicy Breakfast Patties (which are vegan & gluten-free)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (substitute a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend)
  • 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon salt, to tate
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 to 6 Biscuits (recipe below OR try these Easy Biscuits)

Gluten-free Biscuits

  • 1½ cupEnjoy Life All-Purpose Flour Mix (it’s gluten-free!)
  • ½ cup non-GMO cornstarch or tapioca starch
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon xanthan gum*
  • 1⅓ cups coconut cream 
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey or agave nectar (for strict vegan)


To make the Cream Biscuits:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, starch, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and xanthan gum until thoroughly combined.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the coconut cream, vinegar, and honey until smooth.
  3. Add the coconut cream mixture to the flour blend, and stir with a spoon to combine. Gently work it with your hands to bring everything together. It should be somewhat sticky.
  4. Dump the dough onto a floured mat (I use more of the Enjoy Life All Purpose Flour). Gently bring it together and pat it until about ¾- to 1-inch high. Use a 2- to 2½-inch biscuit cutter dipped in the flour to cut circles and place them in a greased baking dish, touching one another.* Bring the scraps together and cut again, an repeat the cutting process. If using a 2-inch biscuit cutter, you should get around 16 biscuits, 12 biscuits if using a 2½-inch cutter.
  5. Place the biscuits in the freezer while you preheat your oven to 425ºF (about 20 to 30 minutes).*
  6. Bake the biscuits for approximately 13 to 17 minutes, or until lightly risen and looking slightly browned. This flour blend is whole grain, so they don’t have a fluffy “white” rise, but are perfect for the gravy.

To Make the Gravy:

  1. Put cooked cauliflower, 1 cup of water and nutritional yeast in your blender.  Blend until smooth, about 1 minute.  Add remaining 1 cup of water and blend to combine. 
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the sausage and sauté while breaking into small pieces, until cooked through.  Approx. 2 minutes for vegan sausage or 5 minutes if meat-based. 
  3. Reduce the heat to medium-low and whisk in the flour.  Cook while whisking for 2 to 3 minutes.  The flour should absorb into the sausage and oil and become slightly golden. 
  4. Slowly whisk in the cauliflour mixture and cook, whisking often, for 5 minutes or until it is a rich gravy consistency.  If it thickens too much, whisk in a little more water, as needed. 
  5. Whisk in the salt and black pepper. 
  6. Cut the biscuits horizontally with a serrated knife.  Place them, cut side up on serving plates. Top biscuits with a generous amount of gravy. 
  7. Store leftover sausage gravy in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
