Simple Gravy

I’ve never really thought about it before, but gravy is mighty difficult to photograph in an appetizing manner. Besides being complicated to capture on camera, this recipe is incredibly quick and easy to make. I’ve used it for every Thanksgiving potluck for the past six years and it has always been a huge crowd pleaser.


  • 2 tbs flour
  • 2 tbs oil - I use veggie or canola and in a pinch I've used corn
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 vegetarian bouillon cube
  • 1/8 cup yellow onion


Step 1

I start by either boiling or microwaving the water and bullion cube until it's a well mixed broth, then set it aside.

Step 2

Over medium heat, put oil and onions into a small sauce pan and cook until the onions become translucent. Lower the temperature, add flour and stir until your roux has a smooth consistency.

Step 3

Add broth and stir over low heat until it thickens.
