Vegetarian Gravy

gravy

No fair how vegetable gravy is not available on grocery store shelves like chicken or beef! They do have a powdered version but I only found those available online. Personally, I haven’t tired it but I hear it’s good. I prefer to make food from scratch. This is a healthy tasty gravy that can be added to pot pies or mashed potatoes!

Ingredients

  • ½ tsp coconut oil
  • 1 big garlic clove
  • ½ medium white onion, grated
  • ½ tsp thyme
  • ½ tsp oregano
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp whole grain Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 4 tsp tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 vegetable bouillon cube
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast, optional

Tip: If you do not have a vegetable bouillon cube, use 2 cups of vegetable broth and omit the water.

Instructions

  1. In a small pan on medium heat add the coconut oil, onion and garlic. Sauté for about 10-15 minutes. (Tip: The more caramelize the onions are, the more flavor this gravy will have.)
  2. Now, add the seasons and flour.
  3. Once the flour is incorporated add the remaining ingredients.
  4. Simmer for about 10 minutes.
