In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat 1/4 cup of vegetable broth.  Gently sweat the chopped onion with salt and pepper until translucent, approximately 4 minutes. Add minced garlic and cook for one more minute.

With a wooden spoon, mix the flour into the onion and garlic and form a smooth paste; approximately 1 minute.  Slowly add the remaining 2 cups of vegetable broth in three equal installments.  Each 1/3 should be fully incorporated and smooth before adding the next.
