Last night I made a very traditional Swedish dish, meatless meatballs with cooked potatoes and to top it off…an amazing creamy gravy. This is how Swedish meatballs is suppose to be served. I will for sure make the gravy again for Thanks Giving to be served paired with neatloaf. The recipe I found on a blog but I veganized it a bit. For the meatballs I was lazy and used frozen kinds. I tried a new brand called Nate’s meatless meatballs and everyone in the family agreed they were very tasty.

1 1/2 cups cream ( I used mimic)
3/4 cup sour cream ( I used tofutti)
2 tsp vegetable bouillon powder
1 tbs Bragg’s liquid aminos or light soy sauce
1 tbs cranberry sauce or jam
1 tbs all-purpose flour (mixed with 1 tbs water I used white spelt flour)

Place everything in a sauce pan and bring to a boil while whisking. Reduce to a simmer for 5minutes. Yum!!!
