Ingredients

  • 2 cups coconut milk, full fat; or use 1 cup creamy coconut milk + 1 cup bone broth
  • 3 large onions thinly sliced
  • 3 Tablespoons lard or use bacon fat or avocado oil
  • 3 slices bacon
  • 1/2 ounce dried mushrooms optional, soaked in hot water for 15 minutes
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3/4 teaspoon sage dried
  • 3/4 teaspoon thyme dried
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  1. Melt fat in large skillet, over medium-high heat.
  2. Add onions, bacon and sea salt, stirring occasionally until onions are just wilted and starting to brown, 5-8 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to low and cover, stirring every 5-10 minutes, for 20 minutes total.
  4. Add the garlic and herbs; sauté an additional 5 minutes, until fragrant.
  5. Add coconut milk and optional dried (soaked) mushrooms, de-glazing the pan as you stir.
  6. Simmer, uncovered over medium-high heat, for 5 minutes more, reducing down overall liquid.
  7. Turn off heat. Allow to cool slightly.
  8. Spoon 3/4 of the mixture into a blender, including both bacon pieces, and puree for 15-20 seconds at medium-high speed.
  9. Stir puree back into remaining gravy in pan. Heat gently, stirring. Serve or use in another recipe.
