This is a quick, easy better-than meat gravy recipe using ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen, along with Barlean’s Butter Flavored Coconut Oil. You can add a little fresh sage, thyme and or rosemary for an extra boost of holiday flavor.
3 Tbsp Barlean’s Butter Flavored Coconut Oil
1/2 finely chopped onion
2 minced garlic gloves
3 Tbsp flour (use coconut flour for gluten free)
2 Tbsp Tamari or Bragg’s Aminos
1 cup water
salt and pepper
Optional: 4 oz sliced mushrooms + 1 tsp Barlean’s Butter Flavored Coconut Oil
Put Barlean’s Butter Flavored Coconut in a saucepan and sauté the onions and garlic over med-high heat.
Reduce heat back to medium after onions and garlic have become golden brown.
Make a roux by gradually adding the flour, while continuously stirring to avoid lumps.
Still stirring, add Tamari or Bragg’s Aminos and water to the mixture.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Once the gravy has reached desired thickness, turn off the stove and you are done!
Optional: Add Sautéed Mushrooms
Put 4 oz of sliced mushrooms in a small sauté pan along with 1 tsp Barlean’s Butter Flavored Coconut Oil. Sauté over low-medium heat until golden brown. Stir finished mushrooms slowly into the gravy.
