Preheat oven to 400F. Combine onion, carrots, celery, mushrooms, tomato paste, Wesson Canola Oil, salt, and pepper into a large roasting pan. Mix all ingredients together to coat in oil and tomato paste.
Roast in preheated oven for 60-90 minutes, stirring every 20 minutes or so until vegetables are well roasted. Remove from the oven and pour 2 cups of water into the pan.
Using a wooden spoon, scrape the pan to deglaze.
In a medium saucepan combine Wesson Canola Oil and flour. Cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes until slightly browned.
Add the vegetables and water from the roasting pan along with 4 additional cups of water. Bring to a simmer and cook for 25 minutes.
Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer. Using the back of a spoon or ladle, press as much of the cooked vegetables through the strainer as possible. This adds extra thickness and flavor.
To thicken the gravy, bring it back to a light simmer and cook for a few more minutes, until it reaches the desired consistency.
Add additional salt and pepper to taste.
