Homemade Gravy

Adding a creamy and thicker texture to your soups, stews, gravies and sauces used to be a real challenge in gluten-free cooking. So we designed our Mehl’s Gluten-Free Premium Flour to not only bake beautiful gluten-free baked goods, but to add texture and thickening to sauces soups and gravies without adding any undesired tastes.

Heat is the magic catalyst to thickening soups, sauces, gravies and stews. Having a little fat of some type is also important, as it provides something for the flour mix to anchor to for bridging the liquids and fats together to add texture and thickening.

In order to give you a feel for how great Mehl’s Gluten-Free Premium Flour works, here is a quick recipe for a quart of gravy that is great for the holidays or any day of the week!
