Gravy does not take long to prepare, but it makes all the difference to a roast dinner. I make extra to freeze, ready to defrost as and when required (lasts about 3 to 4 months in the freezer). Perfect with a British roast dinner or with veggie sausages, mashed potato and steamed greens, or poured over vegan toad in the hole.



  1. In a medium or large saucepan, add the oil and sauté the onion over medium heat for about 5 minutes until softened. Stir in the red wine, Worcestershire sauce and dried thyme. Simmer for another couple of minutes.
  2. Now stir in the vegetable stock and the cornstarch mixture.
  3. Bring to a gentle simmer, stirring for 10 to 12 minutes, until the gravy has thickened and coats the stirring spoon well. Add a little more water or stock if the gravy gets too thick.
