Brown Vegetarian Gravy
1 vote


This is a tasty gravy which can be used on roast or steamed root vegetables in cultures where meat gravy is usually used. While types O and AB could of course use it they have no special need to. Type B could also make it with an acceptable flour, but its special appeal is to A's who do not use meat gravy.
