This gravy is easy, savory, and all around absolutely delicious! I’m an absolute sucker for gravy, it’s definitely one of my favorite holiday foods. It’s also one of the foods that can easily add tons of calories and fat to a meal without you even realizing it. I used to make gravy with vegetable bouillon, oil, and flour, and even though it’s super quick and easy to make, it wasn’t healthy and it just doesn’t have the depth of flavor I’m looking for in a gravy. This recipe does, and I love that this recipe doesn’t use any flour or starch to thicken the gravy. If you’re looking for a delicious and healthy gravy to try out, I definitely recommend you try this one!

*I used Trader Joe’s coconut aminos.
**This tastes best after sitting in the fridge overnight and reheating it.
