Feasting With FARE: Turkey Gravy

A gravy recipe by Lori Dziuba that is dairy-free and gluten-free, and can be made with or without drippings from a roast for additional flavor.

Turkey Gravy

Gravy is such a basic condiment, yet often calls for flour, butter, milk or some combination of these ingredients. Many gravy recipes are made with drippings from a roast. I have learned an incredibly easy method to make gravy from scratch. This gravy is dairy-free and gluten-free. It can be made without relying on drippings from a roast. If you are making a roast, add some of the drippings to the broth for additional flavor.


  • 2 cups chicken or turkey broth
  • ¼ cup vegan margarine
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

To thicken:

  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ¼ cup cold water


  1. Add chicken broth to a saucepan, bring to a gentle boil.
  2. Whisk all spices into broth, add margarine.
  3. Continue to cook until margarine melts throughout.
  4. Create slurry to thicken gravy by mixing cornstarch and cold water in a small glass or bowl.
  5. Add slurry to gravy, whisk to combine. Continue whisking until gravy thickens.
