This easy homemade gravy recipe left us kind of speechless. Yes, it was that good and I will be including it in many more meals.
Truth be told, I never make gravy other than on holidays, and even then it’s usually my mother’s gig. But this happened:
We brought some leftovers home from a family dinner and my husband was looking in the refrigerator for some gravy. Oops…I didn’t bring any of that home with us.
I decided to try to make him some gravy but wanted it to be a little healthier, so I looked through some books and found some interesting combinations. Of course, the gravy had to be gluten and dairy-free as well so I could have some too. So I started experimenting with some of the ingredients.
This gravy recipe is what I happily ended up with…and have stuck with.
The flavor is so satisfying I decided it had to be called savory gravy. And it is fabulous on everything we’ve tried from potatoes to stuffing to “roll dunking”, and sandwiches.
The ingredients in this gravy are versatile making it a user-friendly recipe for food sensitivities and special diets. This recipe is:
2. Just 2 WW points plus for each serving
3. Vegan-friendly using vegetable broth
an option for corn and soy-free diets substituting Coconut Aminos for soy sauce
4. Paleo-friendly using almond flour for brown rice flour. Start with 1 tbsp less of the flour as it may result in too thick of a gravy.
5. Dairy and gluten-free
