This easy make ahead Whole30 gravy is made with no flour, silky smooth, and perfectly seasoned. The best gravy for everyone at your table that’s also super simple to make!

Is gravy not the best part of holiday meals? I mean, a good gravy can give an assist to just about any dish in need of some love – dry turkey, bland mashed potatoes, over baked stuffing. It’s like the little (DELICIOUS) miracle worker of Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Unlike most gravies that are thickened with some type of starchy flour, this gravy is flourless! It gets its body from blending caramelized onions, garlic, and a few cashews together with a thyme infused broth for a silky texture and tons of savory flavor.

– Onions & garlic – Olive oil  – Broth – Thyme – Raw cashews – Salt and pepper


Sauté the onions and garlic. In a large skillet warm olive oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add diced onions and garlic and cook until tender and starting to caramelize.

Simmer the gravy. Add thyme sprigs, cashews and broth to the pan and bring to a boil, scraping up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Lower to a simmer until liquid has reduced by almost half.

Blend until smooth. Transfer the contents of the skillet to a blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy. If desired, return to the skillet to the stove to simmer on low in order to reduce slightly, stirring frequently so it doesn’t stick to the pan.

Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve, or cool and store until ready to use.

Serve and enjoy!
