This gravy was great. I used real onion instead of onion powder and vegetable boullion instead of vegetable broth and it worked out fine. I had a problem with the flour clumping so I'd recommend sifting it first. All in all it was fabulous!

This gravy wasn't what I was looking for. It tasted too flour-y, and I'm not sure why. I did add mushrooms which gave it a bit of interest.

This was excellent. Instead of adding the flour as directed I put the required amount plus extra and shook it in a jar with cold water, really well. Then slowly added the flour mixture to the hot gravy, stirring slowly. It thickened up nicely. Also your not supposed to boil miso so I added after it had boiled. I added kelp as well because miso and kelp combined remove radiation out of the body. Enjoy.

The only difficulty that I had was in making it thick. And I can't cook at all. I made this with mashed potatoes (as the main dish) for 11 people. About 3/4 really like the gravy (which is pretty darn good with this group.) All in all, very worth making, just be prepared to let it sit for a while to thicken, and never really get that thick. Also, be sure you like miso.

This turned out to be easy as promised and pretty tasty. I had to adapt this recipe since I don't have miso paste and I am not sure what that is. I added some corn starch in it's place to ensure the gravy woulf thicken. I added some garlic and onion spices to give it great flavor.

This gravy is easy and delicious; a meat-eater would never know this was vegan.

though i made a smaller quantity, this gravy came out really really well. nice and thick. very miso-y though.. and therefore quite salty.

I liked it! It's a good way to use up the last of the miso. I didn't have onion powder, but I sauteed some spring onions before adding the flour. I used 1 beef bouillon and 2 sodium-free vegetable bouillon cubes for the broth, and found it to be salty enough.
