Jalapeno-Corn Gravy

A great gravy alternative from The Veganomicon:

  • 1 cup veggie broth
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium sized onion, chopped
  • 2 jalapenos, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 cups corn
  • 1/4 cup milk (I used almond)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • Saute the onion and jalapenos in the oil for 5 minutes, until soft. Add garlic.
  • Add the corn and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Mix cornstarch and broth together in a bowl. Add broth mix and milk to pan, stir, and let thicken for ~4 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Transfer to blender or food processor and puree. Add lemon juice to taste.

  • Be sure to wash your hands after handling the jalapenos, and not touch your eyes and nose and then run around crying because it feels like they are burning off your face. Learn from my mistakes.


    1. I think I had served it with shepherd's pie, to give it a twist.

    2. Great on a chicken-fried steak!
