I was delightfully surprised at how delicious this gravy is. It's perfect served on meat and veggies, especially Caulipots. Caulipots are a mixture of mashed potatoes and cauliflower.

How to Make Chickpea Gravy And Caulipots

Step-by-Step

  1. FOR THE GRAVY:
    Preheat a saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute the chopped shallot, garlic and mushrooms in the oil for about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the thyme, sage and pepper and cook for 3 more minutes. While this is cooking, put the broth in a bowl and add the arrowroot and tamari, mix until the arrowroot is completely dissolved.
  3. Using either a stand blender or immersion blender add the chickpeas and broth mixture to either blender and process. If you use a stand blender, once done return the gravy to the pot.
  4. Once the gravy is thick, lower the heat and you can add more broth if you wish to make a thinner gravy, this is up to you.
  5. Keep warm.
  6. FOR THE CAULIPOTS:
    Place the potatoes in a large pot. Add your water, making sure it's at least 4 inches above the potatoes.
  7. Bring the potatoes to a boil and add the cauliflower heads and simmer for about 15 minutes. Check to make sure the cauliflower heads are soft.
  8. Drain the potatoes and cauliflower in a colander and return them to the pot and mash them with a hand masher. Add the olive oil and 4 tbsp. of broth as well as the seasonings. Mash them a bit more and take a taste. Add the pepper. Add some salt if you find this too bland. I added a little vegan margarine to mine.
  9. Serve with the Chickpea Gravy. This is truly delicious.
  10. Enjoy!
