Rich Vegan Gravy Sauce Recipe

This gravy sauce is full of deep meaty flavours with but is actually 100% vegan. This achieved by the combination of some yeast extract (Marmite) and Maggi seasoning sauce (liquid aminos), although this is entirely optional, and the red wine gives the sauce body. I like to make this with roast vegetables or a nut roast.

Rich Vegan Gravy Sauce Recipe
Yield: 6 Servings
Difficulty: Easy
Cooking time:


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion
  • 50 ml red wine
  • 1 tsp yeast extract (Marmite)
  • 1 tsp Maggi seasoning (liquid aminos)
  • 1½ tbsp flour
  • 350 ml vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion
  • 3 tbsp red wine
  • 1 tsp yeast extract (Marmite)
  • 1 tsp Maggi seasoning (liquid aminos)
  • 1½ tbsp flour
  • 1½ cups vegetable stock


  1. Cut the onion in half and slice thinly into strips and sauté with the olive oil on a low to medium heat.
  2. Allow the onions to brown and caramelise, this may take about 10 to 15 minutes. Add the red wine and allow this to reduce to glaze the onions.
  3. Add the flour to form a roux and stir with a whisk so that it cooks and there is no floury taste.
  4. Dissolve the yeast extract into the vegetable stock, add the Maggi seasoning and add this to the roux. Stir so that there are no lumps.
  5. The sauce will quicken quickly, allow this to come to a simmer and remove from the heat.
