Vegetarian Gravy Granules

Gravy is an essential part of any roast dinner – vegetarian dinners included. Homemade gravy is great, but the convenience and tastiness of shop-bought gravy is hard to beat. Okay – so you know that the green ‘vegetable’ gravy tubs are vegetarian, but what about the others? In the past, the green vegetarian/vegetable gravy granules (either Bisto or supermarket branded) were the only ones that were suitable for vegetarians, but now lots of gravy granules, and some premium gravy products are meat-free. Many vegetarians are surprised when I point out that the standard red tub of Bisto is now veggie, so I thought I’d highlight a few of the veggie options available.

Please note: all these products were labelled as ‘vegetarian’ at the time of writing, but don’t forget that ingredients may be subject to change, so always check the packaging before purchasing!
