Melt butter over low/medium heat and add navy bean flour. Stir until the roux becomes just a little golden brown.
Add broth/water and simmer until it is almost as thick as you like it. The gravy will continue to thicken as it cools, so remove from heat and add salt and pepper to taste.
*Navy beans ground into a fine flour using a coffee grinder. To make them more digestible I soak huge batches and then dehydrate before grinding.

Here are a few of my favorites:
Cauliflower Crust Pizza – This simplified cauliflower pizza crust doesn’t require any pre-cooking, steaming, squeezing, or double back-handsprings. It takes only a few minutes of hands-on time and holds together beautifully! We have it almost every Friday night – it’s one of our favorite family traditions.
Homemade Chicken Nuggets With Creamy Ranch Dressing – I’m always looking for ways to save time in the kitchen, so awhile I skipped a couple of steps while making our favorite chicken nugget recipe. And you know what? No one noticed. They gobbled them down and asked for more, so I never went back to the more complicated method.
