Who doesn't love a creamy, rich, flavorful gravy you can drizzle onto your potatoes? But don't stop there, you can pour this one on just about everything! It's that good!
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 medium onion, diced small
1 large clove garlic, minced
1/3 cup nutritional yeast flakes
2/3 cup all-purpose flour, or gluten-free all-purpose flour
4 cups water
3 tablespoons tamari
1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
pinch of sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat sauté the onions until soft. Whisk together the nutritional yeast and flour and add to the sautéed onions. Stir for 1 to 2 minutes. The mixture will be arid.
In a separate container, combine water, tamari, and thyme. Slowly begin adding the liquid while continuously whisking. Continue until all of the liquid has been added, breaking up any lumps as you go. Cook until gravy starts to bubble and thicken.
If you prefer a completely smooth gravy, with no texture from the sautéed onion, carefully run your immersion blender through the gravy for a minute or two, and poof! You have a deliciously smooth, creamy gravy. If you don't have an immersion hand blender and are thinking about getting one, we would suggest this durable Cuisinart CSB-75BC Smart Stick 2-Speed Immersion Hand Blender
Adjust seasoning by adding to taste salt and pepper to your gravy and enjoy!
Keep leftovers in the fridge for up to three days, or in the freezer for up to three months; just thaw, reheat, and enjoy!
