  • 56g Vegan Butter
  • 1 Medium Onion finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Crushed Garlic
  • 4 Tbsp All Purpose Flour
  • 240ml Coconut Milk
  • 2 Tbsp Dark Soy Sauce
  • 480ml Vegetable Stock
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • Sea Salt to taste


  • Add the vegan butter to a saucepan and let it melt. Then add the chopped onions and garlic and fry in the butter until very soft and translucent.
  • Mix the flour and a little of the coconut milk together and mix it into a paste. Then add the rest of the coconut milk to the paste and whisk it in so that the flour and coconut milk is well combined and free of lumps.
  • Then add the flour and coconut milk mix to the saucepan along with the soy sauce and vegetable stock and whisk together.
  • Bring to the boil, whisking constantly and then let it boil for a few minutes until it thickens. You don’t need it to get very thick, because you want it to be a nice pourable consistency.
  • Add some black pepper and then sea salt to taste.
  • Serve over mashed potatoes or over anything that needs a delicious rich gravy.


*To make this gravy gluten-free you can try it with a gluten-free all purpose flour and a gluten-free soy sauce. I have not tested it this way but have made other sauces with gluten-free all purpose flour and it has worked perfectly.
