Homemade Dairy-Free Gravy Mix
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
I use 2 tablespoons of this mix per cup of water for a bolder, thicker gravy. But if you want a lighter, thinner gravy, use just 1 tablespoon.
Recipe type: Sauce
Cuisine: American
Serves: 30 to 40 servings
Gravy Mix
  • ½ cup non-GMO cornstarch
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour (You could do all cornstarch for gluten-free but I like it with half flour best.)
  • ¼ cup dairy-free bouillon (chicken, vegetable, or another flavor of your choosing)
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground celery seed
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon instant coffee (optional; for a deeper brown gravy flavor)
To Prepare Gravy
  • Water, as needed
  • Salt, to taste (optional or as needed)
