  • Combine 2 ¾ cup vegetable broth, tamari, onion powder, garlic powder and rosemary in a pourable vessel. Whisk together and set aside. 
  • Then start your roux by heating olive oil in a sauce pan over medium heat. Whisk in 5 tablespoons of the chickpea flour. Keep whisking until it is smooth. It will be a golden color and have a nutty aroma. Be careful not to burn the roux. If it starts to turn brown, it's starting to burn.
  • Whisk in the vegetable broth mixture. Cook over medium-high heat, whisking consistently, until desired thickness is reached. As it reaches a boil, it will begin to thicken. If the gravy is not thick enough for your liking, whisk in more chickpea flour. If it is too thick, whisk in more broth. 
  • Once the gravy has reached desired thickness, turn off the heat and stir in freshly ground black pepper and kosher salt to taste.



Gravy can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. You can also freeze the gravy in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
Reheat leftovers in a microwave safe dish in 30-second intervals, stirring in between. You can also reheat in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until heated throughout. If frozen, allow gravy to thaw completely in the airtight container in the refrigerator before reheating.
