I grow fresh herbs in my garden, so I'm always looking for ways to use them. I don't like a lot of onion in my gravy, so I simply slice an onion for flavoring the broth but remove the slices before making the gravy. Once I substituted peeled whole shallets (because I had a few laying around) for the onions, again removing them before making the gravy. Garlic lovers be sure to see notes within the recipe! This meal is best served with mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables.
