Instructions
  1. Heat 1 tbsp of butter and 1/2 tbsp of olive oil in a pan. Slice onion very finely, and add to melted butter and cook until translucent on medium-low heat.
  2. Stir in herbs and a pinch of salt and papper. Let cook for 2 more minutes. Add 1/4 cup of red wine and increase heat to medium until wine has reduced (about 5 minutes). Set onions aside.
  3. In the same pot, melt the remaining butter. Create a roux by adding the flour, one tablespoon at a time and whisking together. Once your roux is golden in colour, slowly pour in the vegetable broth while whisking until the gravy thickens. For a thinner gravy, add more broth.
  4. Stir in the onions and add more wine to taste. Sprinkle in salt and pepper to taste and serve over your Christmas goodies!
  5. Option: You can also blend this gravy to make it smoother.
