This Tahini Gravy is creamy, rich, and made with only 5 healthy ingredients! Naturally Vegan, Gluten-Free, and delicious.




  1. Bring a medium pot or saucepan to medium heat and add the Nutritional Yeast and Flour. Toast for 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently. The Nutritional Yeast will darken in color and release a fragrant “smoke” once toasted.
  2. Pour the Vegetable Broth, Tahini, and Tamari into the warm saucepan, whisking rapidly to combine. Raise the heat to medium-high until the mixture begins to bubble, then reduce the heat to low and simmer until thickened to your liking.
  3. Serve immediately, and store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 7 days. This gravy will thicken as it cools, so I suggest reheating with extra Vegetable Broth or Water until it smooths out again.


  • I suggest using either Brown Rice Flour, an All-Purpose GF Flour Blend, or regular AP Flour for this recipe. This recipe will not work well with other GF Flours (Almond, Oat, Coconut, White Rice, etc) as they thicken differently with heat.
  • Vegetable Broth can also be substituted for Mushroom, Vegan Beef, or Chicken-Flavored Broth
  • Tamari may be substituted for Liquid Aminos or Soy Sauce (not GF), but I recommend sticking with Tamari if you can as it has the best depth of flavor
