No-Fuss Gravy

I usually do gravy last, using the fat and pan drippings from my roasted turkey.

Gravy is super easy, BUT when it comes to gluten-free gravy, you’ll want to be careful. Many gluten-free thickeners will actually make gravy very gooey and slimy; your best bet is using organic corn starch (if you can tolerate corn). Organic corn starch is made  from non-GMO corn and is perfectly fine on special occasions – I order mine from Tropical Traditions but you can find organic corn starch at most natural markets and Whole Foods.

Yes, I know this is a grain-free recipe site; but I just can’t ask my fellow bad cooks to babysit gravy to keep it from going gooey. There are more important things to do, like finish that bottle of wine before Grandpa Phil gets to it.

Note: whenever I screw up my gravy, I simply blend ½ cup mashed potatoes with 1 cup pan drippings and season with salt and pepper. Maybe THAT’S the recipe I should’ve used here. Hmmm…

  1. For those of us who can’t tolerate corn, what do you recommend? Arrowroot powder?
