Southern Vegan Menu Part 3: Sausage Gravy, Greens

These two don't really go together, but I wanted to highlight the Lightlife  brand of sausage and bacon.

Gravy

Cook crumbled Gimme Lean sausage and set aside.
Melt 1/4 stick Earth Balance shortening.
Add 1/4 C your favorite flour to make a roux.  Stir to keep it from burning.
Add 1 1/2 to 2 C broth mixture and bring to a boil(I used 3 +knorr Unilever vegetarian bouillon cubes, white and black pepper, and dried sage)
Add plain unsweetened almond milk to make it thick like gravy.
Put the cooked sausage crumbles back in and season with salt to taste.


Greens

Cook chopped Smart Bacon in oil or Earth Balance shortening until crisp.
Add a bag of cut and washed greens (mustard, turnip, kale, etc.)and stir to warm  They taste great with just a little heat.
Add salt, pepper, and Bragg's to taste.
