  • Easy
  • Makes 400-500ml gravy (enough for 2-3 people)
This is an easy, but very tasty and slightly creamy vegetable gravy. You can use normal butter or margarine - I'm allergic to cow's milk, but find that butter makes a richer gravy than margarine


  • A decent knob of goats butter (~50g)
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 40g plain flour
  • 500ml hot vegetable stock


  • STEP 1
    Melt the butter in a small pan over a medium heat. While it is melting, chop the onion and peel the garlic.
  • STEP 2
    Turn to high, add the onions and crush the garlic straight into the pan. While that are cooking, make/heat the vegetable stock.
  • STEP 3
    When the onions have softened, add the flour and stir to make a paste.
  • STEP 4
    Add the stock a ladle-full at a time, stirring constantly.
  • STEP 5
    When the desired thickness is reached, add another half a ladle of stock. Then simmer, still stirring regularly, for around 5-10 mins.
