The challenge that more and more Thanksgiving hosts face each year is accomodating an increasing number of guests who don’t eat meat from animals. To make your Thanksgiving table bountiful for those who are not eating turkey, you need a hearty and protein-rich dish that has all the aroma and taste of Thanksgiving. That's where this Impossible™ Thanksgiving Gravy comes in.

Gravy is one of the stress points for every cook on Thanksgiving. The prospect of lumpy or boring gravy haunts even the best cooks, who vow each holiday that this year's gravy is going to be perfect! Problem solved here. This is an easy-to-make recipe and is virtually fool-proof in producing a hearty gravy. With Impossible™ Burger as the base for the gravy, this can be served over rice or mashed potatoes as a main course. You can also make the recipe 100% plant-based by using plant-based butter.

If your household is also making a turkey, the other advantage of this recipe is that you don’t have to wait until the turkey is done roasting to begin making the gravy—eliminating the last-minute scramble of many Thanksgiving cooking rituals. You can make this on the stovetop while the turkey is in the oven, so when the turkey comes out, dinner is served.
