Dairy Free Gravy

This is a great basic recipe for a dairy free gravy that you can easily whip up on a busy weeknight. You can use any stock that suits your needs (vegetable, chicken, mushroom, etc). Feel free to replace some/all of the stock with pan drippings if you’re roasting meat. If you don’t have access to dairy free “butters” or follow a gluten free diet, you can thicken the gravy using a cornstarch slurry. For this gravy I’ve used mushrooms, but you can easily omit those if your family isn’t fond of them.

Easy Dairy Free Gravy

makes about 3 1/2 cups

4 tablespoons dairy free butter (I use Earth Balance)
8 oz finely chopped mushrooms
4 tablespoons flour
3 cups vegetable stock

Heat a large stock pot over medium heat. Melt your butter, then add your mushrooms. Saute until the mushrooms are soft and turning brown. Whisk in your flour one tablespoon at a time, and stir constantly, cooking for about two minutes more (skip this step if making gluten free gravy). Whisk in your stock, and bring to a light boil. Continue cooking until the gravy has thickened, stirring occasionally, and be sure to scrape the bottom so that it doesn’t burn. If making gluten free gravy, now would be the time to add in your cornstarch slurry. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve hotDairy Free Gravy Nutrition
