Vail's Vegetarian Gravy (no drippings necessary)

Coming home from Thanksgiving, I was able to get a bunch of leftovers in my carry-on on the flight so I was very excited about bringing a bit of home cooking back with me. However, as we all know it is impossible to get any form of liquid on a plane so for the gravy I resorted to my own devices… because who eats Thanksgiving leftovers without gravy?!
