During this time of year I make gravy on a weekly basis. When the cold, damp weather sets in, rich, warm, gravy makes for a delicious comfort food smothered over roasted chicken or turkey.

  1. Maybe I just can’t find it. I need a recipe for a white gravy. I’m from the south and I love biscuits and gravy for breakfast. I miss it so much!

    • I’ve been using cornstarch, non dairy butter, white rice flour and rice milk (if you like soy – soy creamer makes gravy thicker).

  2. Gizzards??? Really?? Yuck. Everyone (that does cook) can get the same deep/rich flavors with ALL-veggie products. Start w/low sodium (always …. to control salt) organic veggie broth. Flavor broth w/= grilled mushrooms, a celery stalk, 2 potatoes, small onion, parsnips and a carrot to sweeten the pan. Puree OR drain off veggies and thicken broth w/arrowroot, kudzu,corn starch, or even a butter (light/low salt) flour roux can work. Without those dratted gibbies ….. equally delicious! HEALTHY THANKSGIVING FOLKS!

  3. I’m glad I found this website, the recipes look delicious and are healthy. Now my family and I can live a more healthier lifestyle and stay away from processed foods.

  7. april,

    You are welcome and I’m glad you found us over here!

    I often use kudzu and arrowroot interchangeably in recipes and have not found it to be a problem.


  8. i have a quick question, if you can’t find kudzu at the store, could you use arrowroot instead?

    thank you for this site, i recently became gluten intolerant and it has not been easy for me, but thanks to you this new eating path has been made so much easier!

    thank you and happy holidays!
