postheadericon Great Gluten-Free Gravy

I use this at thanksgiving, or for shepherd’s pie, or for anything. yum. This is an adaptation of a friend’s vegan recipe from back in the day when we were vegetarian.


  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil or drippings

  • 3-6 cloves of garlic, squashed and minced very well
  • 2-3 slices of yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup gf flour or starch of choice
  • 4 tsp. nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 4 TBS Tamari/GF soy sauce
  • 2 cups milk sub (for white gravy) or chicken broth, beef broth, or mushroom broth (for brown gravy)
  • 1/2 tsp. sage
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 5 or 6 (or lots more!) crimini mushrooms, sliced (for mushroom gravy)

Measure the vegetable oil or drippings into a small saucepan. Cook the garlic and onion in it for about two minutes on medium or medium-low heat, until the onion is a bit tender and translucent. Add the flour/starch, yeast, and tamari to make a paste. Add the milk or broth gradually, stirring constantly. Bring the gravy to a boil on medium to medium-high heat, for about 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add pepper. Stir in the sliced mushrooms, if desired. Add salt and serve warm.
