    This took me back to my childhood. Mum always used to make marmite gravy. It really is just the thing to go with a nut roast. Use the vegetable cooking water instead of plain water.  -  23 Feb 2013


    Amazing! I don't even bother telling people it's vegetarian and everyone loves it.  -  27 Dec 2015


    I didn't have any brown gravy so I decided to try this recipe out. I'm so glad that I did because I'll never have to buy brown gravy packages ever again. I didn't have any Marmite/Vegemite so I used 3 beef bouilion cubes (initially I tried 2 and it didn't have much flavor) and just added a dash of salt and pepper. If I ever see Marmite/Vegemite, I will definitely get some and use it with this recipe.  -  18 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
