Time for comfort food, time for home made roasted onion and thyme gravy. Delicious with mash, delicious with chicken, delicious with beef – delicious, delicious, delicious!
Roasted Onion and Thyme Gravy
Halve 2 fairly large onions (either red or white onions are good for this) and cut each half into wedges, then put them into a flame proof roasting tray with a sprinkling of fresh thyme. Drizzle over some olive oil then put the tray in the oven for 40 minutes at 200c.
Once the onions are browned remove the roasting tray from the oven and put it on the hob. Add a tablespoon of flour and stir well so that you get a gooey mess in the tray (this is good, you want goo!). Next stir in 500ml of beef stock, bring to the boil then simmer until the gravy is a good consistency.
Makes approximately 500ml. Double the recipe for double the quantity.
