I have been wanting to make biscuits for a month or so but have been too busy to make them from scratch. When we first made the shift to veganism I made biscuits and gravy a bunch of times. I will have to make Gimme Lean sausage gravy and biscuits one of these weekends!!!
In the last week or so every time I turn around I have seen something about biscuits! The handmade version is really pretty easy, but I do not like getting flour all over the kitchen, the recipe has a lot of shortening, and they take about an hour from start to finish.
I decided to use Bisquik, using soy milk. It was that easy, mixed them up, rolled them out, cut them and tossed them in the oven!!!! From start to finish they took 15 minutes, I tossed some Boca Chic'n Patties in the oven too. I warmed up some eda mame and peas.
Then I made fast gravy:
- no chic broth, 5 mushrooms
- 1/4 onion, garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons of corn starch
- Boiled in the microwave, and run through the Vita Mix.
The biscuits were alright, not the best, or at least not as good as those made from scratch, But it did make a good comfort food kind of meal, in a very short amount of time!!!!!!
