2 tablespoons olive oil
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 (14 1/2-ounce) cans vegetable broth
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add flour; cook 5 minutes or until lightly browned and fragrant, stirring constantly with a whisk. (If flour browns too quickly, remove pan from heat; stir constantly until it cools.)

Gradually add broth to pan, stirring constantly with a whisk. Stir in soy sauce and pepper; cook until thick (about 15 minutes), stirring frequently.
