These vegan biscuits and gravy are perfect for a comforting breakfast, brunch or dinner that's easy to make. The biscuits are flaky and soft, and the gravy is rich, savoury and made with just a handful of ingredients. Gluten-free and ready in around 35 minutes.
Stir together the plant based milk and apple cider vinegar and set aside for around 10 minutes to curdle. When it is almost done, preheat the oven to 180 degrees C/350 F.
Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl combine the brown rice flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar and xanthan gum. Now add the vegan butter and use a palette knife to make a crumbly texture. Do not use your hands to mix, as this will melt the butter.
Pour in the 'buttermilk' mixture and mix together using a rubber spatula until a dough forms.
Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and roll out into a flat rectangle. Fold the rectangle in half, and then roll out once more into a sheet around ¾ inch in thickness.
Use a cookie cutter to cut out the biscuit shapes and transfer them to a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake in the preheat oven for 20-25 minutes, until lightly golden brown.
Make the gravy
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Next, add the onion and carrots, and cook for 3-4 minutes, until they start to soften.
Add the mushrooms and cook for 3-4 minutes more, until they start to soften.
Pour in the coconut milk, also adding the nutritional yeast, salt, buckwheat flour and plant based milk. Stir until the sauce thickens.
