4/14 - Punk Rock Chickpea Gravy

I wasn't feeling up to anything complicated tonight, so I decided to finally try out the Punk Rock Chickpea Gravy from Vegan with a Vengeance. I mashed up some potatoes, sauteed some spinach, and threw the gravy on top. Yes, I actually threw it. I had The Boy stand across the room with the bowl and I hurled gravy at him. It was awesome.

Okay, so that didn't happen. The gravy was delicious, though. Isa really knows how to treat a chickpea. Plus it was super simple. Sautee an onion with some mustard seeds and garlic, add a can of chickpeas, mash 'em up, add an array of spices (cumin, paprika, corianer, oregano, thyme, rosemary), soy sauce, and the juice of one lemon, pour in 2 c. water with 1/4 c. flour dissolved in it, stir until thick, and then add 1/4 c. nutritional yeast. Done.

I really don't like the smell of nutritional yeast. It's very feet-y. Then when you throw lemon juice into the mix things start smelling like vomit. At least to me. So that turned me off for a minute. It tasted good enough when it was done to make up for the unpleasant smells along the way, though.

Definitely a keeper. I'm not surprised at all. VwaV has yet to let me down.

I need to jump on the punk rock chickpeas gravy train. Does it taste similar to other 'gravies'?

Honestly I couldn't say, since this was only the second gravy I've ever made. The other one was a very basic veg stock gravy. This was pretty substantial for a gravy, given the chickpeas... you could almost eat it on its own.

MMMM...I was wondering what this actually LOOKED like so thanks for posting a photo. I'm a really visual person so I tend to want to make recipes that have photos so I can see what I'm striving for in terms of presentation. This is definitely going on my list of things to make. "Feet-y" - LOL!

I'm the same way with recipes - I like to see what I'm getting myself into before I make something. And it does smell feety, you'll see! :)

My mother use to prepare mashed potatoes with fried fish it taste really good I suppose that if you add fish to this recipe it'll taste better.

excuse me, can you tell me what kind of recipes I can prepare with squash? here's the history, one of my friends give me a little amount of seed of this plant, and now I have many of then in my garden.
