Garlic and sage gravy is an easy and delicious way to dip your toe into the art of making gravy. It comes together in a snap on a weeknight.


  • 2 tablespoons onion, small dice
  • 12 cloves of garlic, smashed
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 cup stock, chicken or vegetable
  • 2 teaspoons sage, chiffonade
  • olive oil
  • Splash of lemon juice
  • Splash of heavy cream
  • Kosher salt to taste


  1. Heat a small pot over medium heat. Once hot add just enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the pot. Give the pot a swirl to evenly distribute the oil.
  2. Reduce the heat and add the onion; sauté for a minute or two.
  3. Add the garlic, sauté for another minute.
  4. Add the butter. Once it’s melted add the flour.
  5. Cook the butter and flour mixture for 3 minutes or until you achieve a nice blond color.
  6. Slowly whisk in the stock.
  7. Continue to simmer until mixture thickens.
  8. Once the gravy has thickened, pour the gravy through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl to strain out the bits of onion and garlic.
  9. Return the gravy to the pot.
  10. Off the heat, stir in a splash of lemon juice.
  11. Stir in a splash of cream.
  12. Taste and season as needed.
  13. Stir in the sage.
  14. Serve immediately.


  1. You can make this gravy ahead of time. Add a tiny bit of water to it and warm it up slowly to bring it back to temp.
