Gravy For All

2 tbsp. Kowalski's Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 tsp. (approx.) cornstarch
½ tsp. onion powder
½ tsp. garlic powder
2 ¼ cups (approx.) gluten-free vegetable stock, divided
2 tsp. gluten-free tamari
¼ tsp. freshly ground Kowalski's Black Peppercorns, plus more for garnish
- kosher salt, to taste
- freshly snipped chives, for garnish
  1. In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat.
  2. A bit at a time, sprinkle cornstarch evenly over oil and whisk, using just enough cornstarch to form a loose paste (it should not look dry).
  3. Reduce heat to medium. Add onion powder and garlic powder; simmer, whisking constantly, until mixture begins to turn brown (about 2 min.).
  4. Whisk in most of the stock.
  5. Add tamari; cook, whisking often, until gravy is thick and bubbly (about 3 min.).
  6. Add additional stock as needed to reach desired consistency. Cook, stirring often, until gravy reaches desired thickness (about 3-8 min.). 
  7. Season with ¼ tsp. pepper and salt to taste; garnish with more pepper and chives.
