Easy Vegetarian Onion Gravy

Vegetarians, rejoice! This vegetarian onion gravy is exactly what you’ve been missing on Thanksgiving. It’s so easy to whip up a batch of this stuff. Just keep those saucy carnivorous mitts away from the gravy boat – meat eaters may prefer it over their own non-veggie-friendly gravy.


  • 1 tablespoon plus 4 tablespoons butter, divided (can sub Earth Balance [see Vegan Option])
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onion
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon Tamari or soy sauce (optional)
  • Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • Step by Step Directions

    1. In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, melt one tablespoon of butter.

      Add the onion and sauté for 10 – 15 minutes until soft and light brown.

      Remove the onion from the pan and place in a small bowl. Set aside.

      Add the remaining four tablespoons of butter to the saucepan and melt over medium-low heat.

      Stir in the flour and cook, stirring frequently, for three minutes.

      Gradually stir in the vegetable broth and continue stirring, over medium-low heat, until thickened to a gravy consistency, about 3 – 4 minutes.

      Add back the cooked onions. Add Tamari or soy sauce if using. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.



      Substitute Earth Balance for the butter. I also like to use half olive oil and half Earth Balance.
