It’s easy to make a flavorful gluten free gravy with just a few ingredients! This dairy free recipe is simple, and it’s the perfect finishing touch for your holiday meal.
Well, since I shared the best dairy free mashed potatoes the other day, I thought I should share a recipe for easy gluten free gravy as well. What’s a holiday meal without mashed potatoes and gravy? And don’t forget the green bean casserole!
Whether you’re in need of a good dairy free and gluten free gravy for Thanksgiving or for Sunday dinner, this recipe is easy, flavorful, and made with simple ingredients.
What kind of thickener should you use to make gluten free gravy?
That’s a great question! I prefer corn starch, but tapioca starch also works. I have also used a gluten free flour blend, and that works really well.
Gluten free flour is a nice option if you have a corn allergy. Just make sure your brand of flour doesn’t contain any corn!
You can skip the chicken drippings if you want, but they do add more flavor to this gravy. If you’re in a hurry, or have kiddos randomly asking for mashed potatoes in the middle of the week, you can just make this gluten free gravy with chicken broth.

Easy Gluten Free Gravy.
This gluten free gravy is flavorful and delicious, and made with simple ingredients! It's the perfect addition to your holiday meal.
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 3 Tablespoons corn starch or tapioca starch, or gluten free flour blend
- 3 Tablespoons turkey drippings or chicken drippings - or you can leave these out
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- salt and pepper to taste
Place the chicken broth and drippings (if using) in a pan and bring to a boil.
Place the corn starch (or other thickener) in a mug and add 1/4 cup of the hot broth. Whisk well with a fork.
Add the starch/broth mixture to the pan. Add the garlic powder, onion powder, and salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat while whisking to remove any lumps. The gravy should thicken pretty quickly. If it is too thick, add some more broth.
Season with more salt and pepper if desired before serving.
Can you make gluten free gravy ahead of time?
You can make this ahead of time, but it will kind of solidify in the refrigerator. Just make sure to whisk it thoroughly as you reheat it, and add a little more broth if needed.
If you’re serving a crowd, you can easily double this recipe. And if you have an occasion to make beef gravy, you can do that – just use beef stock and beef drippings.
