Ingredients – 2 people

  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 2 ¾ tbs oil
  • 250ml vegetable stock
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 1 tbs nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 ½ tbs cornflour


  • Peel and finely chop the onion
  • Heat ¾ tbs oil in a pan on high heat and fry the onion for 3-5 minutes until it starts to golden.
  • Mix together the stock, soy sauce, nutritional yeast, garlic powder and pepper in a jug, then pour into the pan with the onions.
  • Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer.
  • Remove 2 tbs of the sauce and add to the cornflour, mixing until it is all incorporated.  Add this mixture back into the rest of the sauce, stir in the other 2 tbs of oil and cook for a further 3-4 minutes until the gravy has thickened, stirring all the time to ensure that it is smooth.
  • When the gravy has reached the required consistency, remove from the heat and serve.
