Vegan Onion Gravy is Delicious

This onion gravy is a wonderful delicious addition to any vegetarian meal. Sometimes our vegetables or veggie burger are extra tasty with a little gravy. I love that it is vegan too. It really is easy to make too.

Onion Gravy Recipe


2 medium onions (yellow ones are best), peeled and thinly sliced into rounds
1 – 4 cloves of garlic
2 – 4 tablespoons Sesame Oil
1/2 tsp marjoram
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar
4 tsp arrowroot
2 – 3 tsp Tamari
1 1/2 c water
Black pepper


  1. Peel and thinly slice onions into rounds.
  2. Put the sesame oil into a frying pan.
  3. Now, sauté onion in the oil on medium-high heat until rich golden brown.
  4. Finely chop the garlic.
  5.  Add garlic and sauté on medium-low heat for 2 minutes.
  6. Now, add marjoram, thyme and balsamic vinegar.
  7. Add 1 cup of water to the onion mixture, stir and simmer for a few minutes on low heat.
  8. Mix arrowroot into 1/2 cup water.
  9. Stir the arrowroot mixture into the onion mixture continually.
  10. Turn heat up to medium and continue to stir while the mixture boils for a few minutes. It will become translucent with a creamy consistency of gravy.
  11. You can add more water to create the desired consistency.
  12. Add tamari and pepper to taste.
