ANY-HOO! We went to see Echo and the Bunnymen last night – which was awesome! What's not awesome? My hangover today! What cures, or at least helps hangovers feel less horrible? Delicious southern comfort food! After posting a pic of the biscuits 'n' gravy I made this morning on Instagram, I got a ton of feedback. Mostly along the lines of, "I want that RIGHT NOW!" soooo, ask and you shall receive!
2 C organic all-purpose flour
1 TBSP baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
4 TBSP vegan butter (I used Earth Balance)
3/4 C plain, non-dairy milk
Preheat oven to 450º F
Mix all dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Blend the butter in with a fork until mixed well. Add milk and combine until a dough forms. With clean hands, knead on a floured countertop for a minute or two, adding more flour as needed so it's not sticky.
Roll out to about a 1/2 inch thickness and cut out your biscuits with a drinking glass rim. You can also just hand-form them if you don't have a rolling pin.
Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes. DONE!
While your biscuits are baking, get to steppin on that gravy!
1/2 C raw cashews (preferably soaked for at least 2 hours, but raw is ok too)
1/2 C all-purpose flour (chickpea flour works well if you're not into gluten...or biscuits)
3/4-1 C water
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
black pepper to taste
Breakfast sausage of choice ( I use 2 Gardein breakfast patties)
Coconut or olive oil spray
Combine all gravy ingredients except the sausage in a high speed blender or Vitamix and blend until super duper smooth. Time depends on blender speed. In the Vitamix, I let it go for about a minute.
Heat a skillet over med-high heat and give a spritz of coconut or olive oil spray. Add your sausage and let it get good and brown on both sides, about 5 minutes. then, while it's still cooking, break up the patties into little crumbles. When it all looks brown, remove from heat and put aside.
Pour your gravy into a small saucepan and heat through on med-high until it starts bubbling. Add sausage crumbles and stir. If it seems too thick, add water a TBSP at a time until you like the consistency.
At this point, your biscuits should be done. Once they're out of the oven put two on each plate, smother in gravy and DIG. IN.
You're welcome! :D
