I remember when I saw my first gravy boat. I had no clue what it was or why it was.
You see, growing up gravy wasn’t a part of many meals – aside from Thanksgiving and, trust me, there was nothing special about it.
Even so, it’s rich texture and flavor was one of my favorite sides of Thanksgiving. And I put it on everything. Then, one day, I ate country-style gravy and I just about died. There was something distinctly different about this, making me feel like I just had to make it for myself! And I did. Here’s what I came up with:Print
How wonderful would be it to have gravy again? Ask no more! Try this country-style gravy with your next Southern-inspired meal. Mashed potatoes, turkey, biscuits and more are all enhanced with this creamy and spicy gravy.
- 1 whole garlic clove (minced)
- 1-1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 cup broth (bone, chicken or vegetable broth works)
- 1 tbsp vegan butter
- 1-1/2 tsp black pepper (or to taste)
- 1-1/4 tsp sea salt (or to taste)
- 1/4 cup gluten free flour
- Add about 1 tsp of avocado oil to a small pot. Add minced garlic. Cook for about 30 seconds to a minute.
- Add in all ingredients but GF flour. Cook for 2 minutes on medium.
- Make sure you have a whisk handy as you start to add the flour little by little. Quickly whisk as you add the flour. This ensures that the flour doesn’t clump up in the gravy mix.
- Once you’ve added all the flour, keep whisking until gravy thickens. You’ll want the gravy to boil as well in order to get maximum flavor.
- Taste the mix periodically. Add in whatever spices you think are missing. Mix it up too! Feel free to create your own version.
Use organic ingredients whenever possible.
