Think: biscuits & gravy.  Then, think: gravy on toast?  That’s much healthier, I think I’ll go with that instead!  Trust me, you won’t miss the biscuit with a good slice of artisan bread and this thick, savory nut gravy.  It’s the kind of breakfast that will warm you up on the chilliest of winter mornings.


  • 4-6 slices of bread, toasted
  • ¾ cup water, divided
  • ⅓ cup Brazil nuts
  • ½ tablespoon onion powder
  • 1½ tablespoons cornstarch
  • ½ tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes
  • ¾ tablespoon Bragg Liquid Aminos
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Bring ½ cup of water to a boil in a medium saucepan.
  • While waiting for the water to boil, blend the rest of the ingredients (nuts, onion powder, cornstarch, nutritional yeast flakes, Bragg Liquid Aminos, and salt) until smooth in ¼ cup of water.
  • Add the blended mixture to the saucepan with the boiling water. Stir over low heat until thickened.
  • Pour ¼ cup of the gravy over each piece of toast and serve with an optional sprinkle of smoked paprika.

Ready in about 10-15 minutes
Makes 4-6 servings
