Classic, delicious Thanksgiving gravy for potatoes, turkey and stuffing, minus gluten and dairy



  • 2 cups turkey pan drippings (or low sodium organic chicken broth)
  • ¼ cup gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut butter or coconut oil
  • 2 Tablespoons whiskey (can sub white wine or lemon juice)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika (optional)
  • finely chopped fresh herbs if desired


  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together coconut butter/oil and gluten free flour until combined. The mixture will still look like crumbled pie dough.
  2. Carefully monitor as it cooks until the smell of the flour is gone and the mixture is changing color to a mocha tone.
  3. Whisk in whiskey (or wine or lemon juice).
  4. Quickly whisk in pan drippings or broth until most lumps are gone.
  5. Add salt, black pepper and paprika.
  6. Let simmer for 1-2 minutes as it thickens. Continue to whisk to avoid lumps.
  7. Remove from heat and serve. If desired, strain to remove any large lumps.
  8. Garnish with fresh herbs if desired.
