Learn how we created the rich flavor in this recipe.
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • Roasted Vegetable Stock, heated
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Melt butter in a 1 1/2- to 2-quart heavy saucepan over moderate heat, then add flour and cook roux, stirring, until pale golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Add stock in a stream, whisking constantly to prevent lumps, and bring to a boil, whisking. Reduce heat and simmer, whisking occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 8 minutes. Stir in salt and pepper.
Cooks' note: Gravy can be made 1 day ahead and cooled completely, uncovered, then chilled in an airtight container. Reheat in a saucepan over moderately low heat.
