Biscuits are the ultimate comfort food for me. I've been craving them ever since my trip to Texas. That trip stirred up all sorts of memories of late nights at IHOP, eating biscuits and gravy and goofing off with Brandon. Alas, those biscuits and gravy aren't even close to vegan or up to my super snobby standards.
Here are the biscuits and gravy I enjoyed tonight.
I mixed up a batch of the baking powder biscuits from Vegan with a Vengeance as soon as I got home from work. Then I started browning a half of a sweet onion to flavor some gravy. There's no real recipe for this gravy- just browned onions, Earth Balance, flour, almond milk and salt and pepper. Sometimes the simplest gravy is the best. Who am I kidding...Gravy is just the best.
But I wanted to add a little something different to the biscuits and gravy. After working on Thanksgiving promotions at work, I felt the need to add some cranberries!
I had a nice big bag of Wisconsin cranberries in the fridge, so I added about a cup of them into a little skillet with a few tablespoons of cane sugar and a bit of water. Then I brought it to a boil very quickly. As the cranberries heat, they pop. It's fun!
When the berries are done, they should look like this. It's basically a thick, tart jam.
