I have always loved Biscuits and Gravy. To me, it’s one of those dishes you just eat every once and a while, usually when I am craving a filling breakfast. But alas, I no longer eat meat and that kind of throws that thick hearty sausage breakfast gravy out the door. Or does it………..?
Well, the sausage part is gone, but the breakfast gravy is back. This time in a Vegan Lentil version. And I thought it was just as good, if not better than its sausage counterpart.
So, here’s the thing. This gravy started out as a research project for a Poutine recipe contest. (You can see my final submission here –> Curried Lentil Poutine) So I never intended for this gravy to be actually used as a breakfast gravy for biscuits. However, neither Mr. Beet nor I cared for the gravy on potatoes for the Poutine recipe (Poutine is a traditional Canadian dish with potatoes, gravy and cheese) and we really didn’t like it with cheese. However, I thought that it tasted just like traditional breakfast gravy, as in biscuits and gravy.
The next morning I baked up some biscuits, threw this gravy on top and called it breakfast. And Mr. Beet and I loved it. And now I have found a new dish to add to the breakfast rotation. And my belly is full and happy.
