Vegan Mofo #26: Chick’n Waffles ‘N’ Gravy

It’s cold and rainy and there’s a snow drift outside your door! What are you going to make using the ingredients that you have?

It’s actually miraculously dry and sunny here in Manchester at the moment, but I don’t need bad weather to trap me in the house. A couple of years ago we had a few bands crash at our house post gig, one of them was from the US and they spoke about the wonders of biscuits and gravy. I’d never understood the appeal of this, but I was convinced to give it a try. Wow, awesome comfort food. I’ve been hooked every since.

This one was easy to waffle-ize and I always have the ingredients around in my house. I keep my freezer stocked full of fake meats for these occasions.

Chick’n Waffles ‘N’ Gravy

For the Biscuit Waffles:

  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 tbsp bicarbonate of soda
  • generous pinch of salt
  • 4 tbsp vegan marg
  • 1/4 cup non dairy milk
For the Sausage Gravy
  • 1 small onion,
  • 3 vegan sausages chopped
  • olive oil
  • 1/4 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup water
  • nutritional yeast
  • salt and pepper
  1. Heat the oven and cook your chicken pieces. Heat a frying pan with olive oil, add the onion and sausage and fry off until crispy.
  2. Add the flour and fry for a few minutes before adding the water, nooch and some seasoning. Stir until the gravy becomes thick, add more water if needed, this stuff absorbs water! Cook on a low heat
  3. Preheat the waffle iron. Now time to start the biscuit waffles. In a small bowl mix together the flour, bicarb and salt. Add the marg and rub through the flour with your fingers until it resembles crumbs. Add the water and mix through, add more if needed. It should be pretty sticky. When combined split into two balls.
  4. Pop the balls into the waffle iron and cook according to your machines instructions.
  5. Serve my sandwiching chick’n pieces and gravy between waffles and then drenching it in more gravy
Makes 2 biscuit waffles and a ton of gravy
Ohh yeah. Proper comfort food. I love this stuff. The biscuit waffles are awesome, so flaky and crispy on the outside. Delicious. If I have fresh herbs in, I’ve added them to the dough before but they’re good without.
If you don’t have any vegan chick’n in, you can always make this without, it’s so filling. I basically ate half a bag of flour for my dinner, but I don’t care!
