Author: Sam Turnbull • It Doesn't Taste Like Chicken
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter (such as Earth Balance)
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour (use a gluten-free flour if preferred)
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth (regular or low-sodium)
  • soy sauce or tamarai to taste (optional)
  1. In a medium sauce pan melt the vegan butter over medium heat. Sauté the onion in the butter until the onion is caramelized. If you're in a rush, you can do this quickly, but the slower you go, the more rich the flavour will become.

  2. Mix in flour and cook for 1 minute. Now whisk in the broth and cook until the gravy thickens. Add soy sauce or tamari to taste if needed, this will also make the colour a richer brown.
