You can find the entire recipe in the recipe card below. However, I would like to explain to you what the ingredients are for in this recipe.
- Onions are for the flavor and to have little bites in the sauce.
- The flour is to make your sauce thicker. You can add flour to most sauces to make them thicker.
- Tomato purée and balsamic vinegar are responsible for the brown color and taste.
- White wine gives this sauce a hint sour flavor.
- Soy sauce and pepper are for seasoning. You can also season it with vegan Worcestershire sauce (if you have it at home) or with one tablespoon of jam, which gives this vegan brown gravy a sweet flavor.
