Homemade Gravy Recipe – Make it Gluten Free!

Easy homemade gravy recipe that is perfect for roast or chicken or even poutine! Make it gluten free by using rice flour or another gluten free flour!

It took me years to learn to make gravy. Which is funny because once you know how, it’s really not at all difficult! Gravy makes so many things taste better. Homemade gravy even more so.

Easy homemade gravy that is perfect for roast or chicken or even poutine!


  • 1 tbsp. Healthy Butter Substitute such as Becel Vegan or Earth Balance
  • 2-4 tbsp. Rice Flour
  • 1 C. Broth, beef, chicken or vegetable
  • Salt & Pepper, optional


  1. In saucepan over medium heat melt butter substitute.
  2. Once butter is melted, begin to stir in rice flour a little at a time. Continue adding flour until butter and flour become a paste (roux).
  3. Then whisk in broth, a little at a time allowing gravy to thicken before adding more broth.
  4. Add salt and pepper (optional).
  5. Serve over potatoes or meat!
See, not hard at all.

Just choose the broth that coordinates with the dish you’re serving!

The trick to homemade gravy is the roux (butter and flour in this case): don’t walk away while the roux is heating, otherwise it will burn.


I’ve used this recipe to make gravy for our slow cooker roast beef dinner, poutine (gluten free and dairy free!), and even roast chicken.


What do you use homemade gravy on?

    Hello, just wondering if you have a tried & true recipe for Tiramisu?
    I used to have one and have misplaced it over the last few years.
    My recipe was made in a trifle bowl, looked fabulous but fairly easy
    to make. Can you help?
    Thank you
