To make the gluten free Ginger gravy.

Mix flour, oil and 3 tablespoons of ginger in a sauce pot. Make a "rue" buy cooking picture on low. A paste will form, this is what you are looking for. Brown this paste (Rue) and in the sauce pot until golden brown. Once the desired color is reached, turn heat on high and slowly wisk in the water slowly and 1/2 cup of Splenda, 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder and 1/2 teaspoon of garlic. This will create your gravy. Note that gravy can be thinned with additional water. Gravy will thicken as it cools.


  1. sounds great! We trying to stick to whole foods as much as possible... will this work leaving out the splenda and using agave instead? Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Yes you can. Sometimes we use it more for taste since the taste of the Agave can sometimes cook off.
