Onion miso gravy

Onion miso gravy

Ingredients

  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 3 medium onions, finely minced (can use a food processor)
  • 2 TBS tamari (may substitute shoyu)
  • 2 TBS flour (try any kind you like; barley, brown rice or kamut)
  • 1 cup broth of choice (may use more if necessary)
  • 1 TBS mellow, white miso
  • 1/3 cupalmond milk, unsweetened (may substitute cashew cream or other non-dairy milk) salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Place the onions and oil in a heavy bottomed pan over very low heat and toss to coat. Cover and cook for about 30 minutes or until very, very soft. Whisk together the tamari and flour in a small dish then add to the onions, and cook for a couple of minutes. Next, add the broth in a slow, steady stream while whisking constantly. Simmer until sauce thickens. Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk the miso with the almond milk. Turn off heat and stir to combine with gravy. Season if necessary with salt and pepper.

Serves about 2 cups.

Creamy cauliflower sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 medium head of cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp unrefined sea salt or Himalayan salt
  • Broth, as needed

Directions

Roast or steam the cauliflower until soft. If roasting the cauliflower, mix the cauliflower, onion, oil and salt in a baking dish and cover with foil. Roast in a 375 F oven for about 30 minutes, or until vegetables are soft. Remove from oven and let stand, uncovered, until cool. If steaming the cauliflower, place florets in a steaming basket and steam until soft, being careful not to let the pan run out of water while steaming.

Meanwhile, sauté the onion and salt in the oil over medium heat until translucent. Let all ingredients cool. Now place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth, adding a little broth while the machine is running to achieve a smooth and creamy sauce. Once it is creamy, taste for salt and add more if necessary. You can also add coconut oil while it is blending for added richness. Add more broth for a thinner sauce, if desired. Serve as a creamy sauce over grains, noodles or vegetables.

Serves about 3 cups.
