12 Days of Local Food – Onion

A year-round staple item, onions are found in so many dishes!  The following recipe is a great one to have on hand if you are not a vegetarian or vegan, but are hosting someone over the holidays who is.  The meat-eaters will have no objection:

Onion Gravy

Ingredients:

1 tbsp plus 4 tbsp butter (or vegan substitute), divided

1/2 cup finely diced onion

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 cups vegetable broth

1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce (optional)

Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, melt one tbsp butter.

Add onion and saute until soft and light brown, about 10-15 minutes.

Remove onion from the pan and place in a small bowl, set aside.

Add remaining 4 tbsp butter to saucepan and melt over medium-low heat.

Stir in flour and cook, stirring frequently, for 3 minutes.

Gradually stir in the vegetable broth and continue stirring over medium-low heat, until thickened to a gravy consistency (about 3-4 minutes).

Add the cooked onions back in.  Add tamari or soy sauce if using.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Tip 1: Try half olive oil and half butter.

Tip 2:  Experiment with different herbs and spices.

Enjoy
