Mashed Potatoes and Punk Rock Chickpea Gravy

Tonight I was in the mood for comfort food so I pulled out the vegan bible.

I'm ashamed to say that I've had this book for 8 years and I have never made this. Bad mouse!

It turned out beautiful. I made a few adjustments. I used a tsp of whole grain mustard because I did not have mustard seeds. When it was done, I found it to be too tart possibly because my lemon was too big. So I added a tsp of miso paste, a pinch of sugar, a squirt or two of Bragg's liquid aminos to counterbalance the lemon. It worked.

I was so happy to finally taste this amazing gravy. Going to make it again and again. The texture of the chickpeas was nice because it felt like my meal was a little more rounded with protein, veg and carb. The recipe is posted online here.

I made that gravy once a super long time ago. It looks delicious, I will have to make it again. Your food is always absolutely craveable!

I might have to crack this book out again very soon! I keep borrowing it from my library but have to actually add it to my own library at home!!!!
