Mashed Potatoes - boil cut yukon gold potatoes for about 20 minutes at low boil. Add to mixing bowl about 6 or 8 tablespoons of earth balance and more salt and pepper than you thing you need. Pour in potatoes and mash. Add almond milk if you need to thin.
Steam carrots for about 10 minutes and then put on the broccoli and cauliflower for about 3 minutes. After steaming, put in mixing boil, lightly cover with vegetable oil and then pour in some favorite spices. Here it's Italian.
Gardein fried chicken - take their cutlets and dredge in a mixture of 80/20 corn starch/flour with some salt and pepper added. Let that sit until the flour starts looking tacky and wet again. Dredge again. Fry at med high in non-stick skillet.
Gravy - in a skillet, cook just a couple of tablespoons of flour with the same amount of earth balance and some salt/pepper. Cook this on medium until flour starts to brown. Slowly add water or almond milk to skillet to avoid lumps. Add enough liquid to get desired consistency when at a boil. Add Worcestershire sauce or au jus mix or whatever flavorings you want. I generally use some 'gravy starter' which is dark caramelized sugar basically... to make the gravy brown.
