*Earth Balance is a natural, vegan, buttery spread. Since it is plant-based, it does not contain any dietary cholesterol. However, many feel that it tastes just as good as real butter, so you can enjoy what you're eating while feeling much less guilty about it. Earth Balance offers a variety of spreads, so you can pick the one that's right for you—and they all contain beneficial Omega-3's.
In this recipe, you can stick with Earth Balance for a healthy alternative to butter that tastes nearly the same. You could also use real butter, which brings its own set of pros and cons. Or you can substitute coconut oil for the spread. The oil will lend a hint of its flavor to the gravy, but as long as you're a fan of coconut oil, you probably won't mind it. In fact, we think it's quite delicious.
