Scraps and Snippets ~ Flexivegan Again ~ Potato Pancakes with Celery Sage Gravy

I'm guessing once a week I'll be bringing you flexivegan posts. What is flexivegan? Well, for me it's ideas that are fails but are then saved because, darn it, I'm not going to waste x amount of $ in ingredients. 
I introduce you to Potato Pancakes with Celery Sage Gravy


1 1/8 Cup vegetable broth
2 medium potatoes
1/2 stalk of celery
1 - 2 cloves garlic
2 TBSP chopped onion 
2 TBSP soy sauce
2 TBSP nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp tumeric 
1/2 Cup oatmeal
1/2 Cup vital wheat gluten
Chop potatoes, celery, garlic and soy sauce to the veggie broth in a saucepan. Simmer until potatoes are tender, about 12-15 minutes.
Cool and transfer to a food processor. Run and when smoother add nutritional yeast, pepper, tumeric, oatmeal and process again. Add gluten and run just a few seconds. 

Spoon a few TBSP each onto a hot griddle, when side browned, flip and press with a spatula. 


1 Cup vegetable broth
1 stalk minced celery
1/4 cashew pieces
1/4 tsp dried sage
1 TBSP flour
2 TBSP cold water

Simmer celery and cashews in the vegetable broth until celery is tender, add sage. Mix the flour into the water then pour into the simmering gravy mixture. Stir until the thickness you desire. 

Pour gravy over the pancakes and serve. Makes about 8 pancakes.
