I am obsessed with roast dinners at the moment. Maybe it’s the change of season, but I am seriously craving stodge – mashed potatoes, roast potatoes, Yorkshire puddings – anything carby and comforting that can be paired with my favourite roast, and I’m after a rich, delicious gravy to top all of this lovely food.

I don’t want to come across like a snob, but for me, Bisto just doesn’t cut it, and homemade vegetarian gravy is often thinly-flavoured and somewhat disappointing, so you can imagine my delight in discovering Essential Cuisine’s No1 Savoury Gravy. It’s by far the most full-bodied, satisfying vegetarian gravy I’ve tried, and it isn’t much of an exaggeration to say we eat it by the bucketload. It’s also not an exaggeration to say that it’s so rich and tasty that would not be out of place served over actual roast beef.

It’s super-simple to prepare and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It’s also gluten-free. And it’s extremely versatile. We use it as a base for savoury stews and soups, and it’s especially good tucked inside a pie crust with mushrooms and caramelised onions.

I’ve linked to the large size, but there is a smaller one available, however the bigger one is much better value – especially if you eat as much gravy as we do through the autumn and winter.
