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.
Step by Step Directions
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.
