Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 2 cups


  • 2 tbsp refined coconut oil (see notes for substitution suggestions)
  • 1/2 small onion, minced
  • 1/2 rib celery, minced
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • pinch marjoram
  • pinch sage
  • pinch nutmeg
  • pinch paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • fresh ground pepper, to taste


  1. Melt the coconut oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
  2. Add onion and celery, and cook until celery is tender and onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add garlic powder, onion powder, marjoram, sage, nutmeg and salt, and stir to combine. Add flour; stir well to combine.
  4. Continue to cook flour for a few minutes until it starts to bubble and brown slightly.
  5. Add vegetable broth, a few tablespoons at a time, stirring well in-between to prevent flour lumps. Add fresh ground pepper to taste. The gravy is done when it's thick and bubbly; transfer to a liquid measuring cup or gravy boat and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

Do NOT use virgin coconut oil as it will mess with the flavour; use refined coconut oil or another unflavoured oil, such as sunflower or avocado.
