    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
