The interwebs have yielded yet another “will definitely make again” recipe. This one is oh-so-simple and uses ingredients most kitchens perpetually have on-hand.
- 3 tbsp butter (could use coconut oil to make it vegan-friendly)
- 2-3 tbsp finely chopped onions
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 tbsp flour (I used President’s Choice Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour Blend — contains tapioca, potato and corn)
- 2 tbsp soy sauce (use Braggs or tamari sauce if you are eating gluten-free)
- 1 cup water (room temperature is best)
- fresh ground salt and pepper, to taste
DIRECTIONS: Put butter in a pot and sauté the onions and garlic over medium-high heat. Reduce heat back to medium after onions and garlic have become golden brown. Make a “roux” by gradually adding the flour, while continuously stirring to avoid lumps. Still stirring, add soy sauce and water to the mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste. Once the gravy has reached desired thickness, turn off the stove and remove pot from heat. Makes roughly 2 cups of gravy.
NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION: Unavailable.
- Quick and easy to make. Enough for one main dish. Goes nicely with vegetarian or meat options.
- Remember to continue stirring throughout the entire cook time — to avoid lumps, burning, and/or over-thickening.
- I have added sautéed, sliced mushrooms and/or a pinch of thyme to switch it up — depending on the pairing.
