The concept is perhaps 4 star but way, way, way too much thyme. I'll continue using the base but find a better formulation of herbs/spices/seasoning.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the thyme and pepper, and cook for 3 minutes more.
  2. While this cooks, mix the flour into the broth thoroughly. Pour this into a blender with the beans and soy sauce and blend until smooth.
  3. Add the onion and garlic mixture to the blender and blend until the onion no longer has any big chunks visible.
  4. Once smooth, pour the mixture back into the saucepan and cook over medium heat until thickened. Reduce heat to low.
  5. Make the gravy thinner, if you like, by adding water and stirring until evenly mixed. Add salt to taste.
