Easy vegetable gravy recipe

It's the end of the month which means I'm using up all the food I have rather than grocery shopping, and on tonight's menu was a big plate of roasted vegetables to use up all those odds and ends in the fridge. My kids asked for gravy so I came up with this really simple and delicious vegetable gravy.

1 tablespoon Earth Balance (or other vegan butter)
1 & 1/2 tablespoons flour
1 cup vegetable stock (I used, and highly recommend, Better Than Bouillon brand)

Melt butter over medium heat. Add flour and whisk for 2-3 minutes until golden brown.
Add vegetable stock, slowly, while whisking to prevent lumps.
Bring to a boil and reduce heat, simmering for 7 minutes, whisking a few times.

Easy! I didn't add salt because I figured there was enough in the stock, but if you use homemade vegetable stock I'd add some salt, to taste.

I could imagine this going well with a Tofurkey roast or smothered on some mashed potatoes. Seriously yummy! I wanted to just drink it out of the pan. o_O

And yes, I know gravy is fairly basic so it's not likely this is actually a recipe no-one's ever come up with before, but I didn't see any recipes for vegetable gravy when I used the tags.
