Sure, here are three popular FAQs about the Ultimate Vegetarian Thanksgiving Gravy Recipe from AddM3 along with their answers:

Can I make this gravy ahead of time?
Answer: Yes, you can absolutely prepare this gravy in advance! Let it cool completely after cooking, then store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. When ready to serve, simply reheat on the stovetop until heated through.

Can I use regular all-purpose flour instead of chickpea flour?
Answer: While chickpea flour is recommended for this recipe as it adds a nutty flavor and helps thicken the gravy without lumps or grittiness, all-purpose flour can be used as a substitute if necessary. However, keep in mind that using all-purpose flour will result in a slightly different flavor and texture.

How do I adjust the thickness of the gravy if needed?
Answer: If your gravy turns out thinner than desired after simmering for 15-20 minutes, you can try adding more chickpea flour or cornstarch mixed with water to thicken it up before serving. On the other hand, if your gravy is too thick for your liking, simply add more vegetable broth or water until it reaches your desired consistency while simmering on low heat.
