Crumble tofu and sauté in a nonstick pan until heated through – for extra flavor, sauté in olive or coconut oil until partially crispy. Set aside.
Heat coconut oil in pan over medium heat and stir in mushrooms and onion. After 5 minutes stir in the garlic and let brown for another 5 minutes. Meanwhile in a smaller pan prepare a roux, by melting vegan butter and gradually adding in the flour. Stir the mixture over medium-low heat for 2-3 minutes until thickened and then set aside.
Go back to your browned mushroom pan and gradually add in vegetable broth. Add the roux mixture to the pan stirring with a whisk and reduce to a low heat. Whisk in the onion powder, tamari and molasses. Then slowly include the water, about a 1/4 cup at a time, until desired consistency presents.
To assemble lay out fries in an oven proof bowl(s), top with ¼ or ½ of crumbled Tofu and smother with gravy topping with the cheese. Bake in oven on broil for 2 minutes until cheese is bubbly.
