Easy Silky Gravy with Cassava Flour {Gluten and Grain-Free, Dairy-Free Option} // 20Dishes.com

Hello friends! Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Jessica here to talk about gluten and grain free gravy.

I don’t know about you, but I am SICK of boogery gravy. You see, I’ve been gluten (and mostly grain) free since 2012 and the only options for thickening gravy that even worked remotely well were arrowroot starch  and tapioca starch.

I’ll never forget one time when I make turkey gravy and my husband commented that the texture was like boogers…I laughed so hard because he was RIGHT! The texture was slimy, sticky, and not that pleasant.

Sure, you could use other gluten-free flours, but frankly, they either didn’t thicken the broth (almond flour) OR they thickened it so much that it turned into a glob (coconut flour — and it tasted like coconut gravy — GROSS!).

Up until last year, I stuck with arrowroot and tapioca starches for my gravies, desire the texture issues. But then I discovered a new flour — a total game changer in my kitchen.

Enter cassava flour! 

Cassava flour is the only gluten and grain free flour that can, in many cases, be used as a 1:1 replacement for traditional wheat flour.

The first time I made gravy, I was STUNNED at how smooth and silky it turned out. Now, it’s my go-to for thickening gravies and sauces.

Goodbye boogery gravy!
