Five Minute Four Ingredient Homemade Gravy

Five Minute Four Ingredient Homemade Gravy by Alison's AllspiceFriends, I hope you didn’t over do it on the mashed potatoes and gravy over thanksgiving because I have a fantastic recipe for you.  This five minute four ingredient homemade gravy is so savory, and can be adapted for many diets.  It is made with broth or stock and can be made vegan, vegetarian, or omnivore!  Whatever broth you use will be the type of gravy you will have.  My mom always made gravy from drippings off a cut of meat, but there is not need for that with this recipe.  You can still enjoy a homemade gravy without needing to roast a whole bird, which makes it great for serving to a small crowd, or serving vegetarian gravy that everyone will enjoy!
