Dark sauce refines seitan, tofu and mushroom dishes. It goes well with Asian wok dishes, with dumplings and of course with vegan Christmas roasts.

Many of us remember the typical gravy that we used to make quickly from powder - even before switching to a vegan diet. This dark sauce with the typical "restaurant taste", where you don't want to look very carefully at the list of ingredients.

Unfortunately, instant sauces aren't always vegan. Meat is only sometimes found in ready-made sauces, but dairy products are often added, sometimes eggs and other animal products.

Do it yourself is certainly the best alternative for experienced cooks with enough time. And with just a few clicks of the mouse, you can find a variety of great recipes for vegan brown sauce online.
