Traditional Low-FODMAP Gravy Recipe; Gluten-free

Print Friendly Version

A quick and foolproof recipe for traditional low-FODMAP gravy, also gluten-free.  Use this over turkey, chicken or beef for a creamy rich flavor that bursts with homemade taste.

Low-FODMAP Gravy is the perfect side dish for your holiday meal.  I am so happy I modified this low-FODMAP Gravy recipe to add that special something to my low-FODMAP Rosemary Maple Chicken and low-FODMAP Prime Rib.  Or layer it over a low-FODMAP Hot Turkey Sandwich with my low-FODMAP Maple Turkey Recipe.

Even more awesome- using my low-FODMAP Happy Spices Italian Seasoning and my low-FODMAP Happy Soup makes prep super simple.

    1. Thank you for the question. Yes! We did use an all-purpose gluten-free flour with low-FODMAP ingredients for this recipe. See our low-FODMAP Bake-off blog for information on our favorite flour. Hope you enjoy the gravy! (The recipe was updated based on your question ?)

  1. Hi Rachel , I have made your chicken stock and turned it into gravy , lush , but my son bought me massel stock cubes for Xmas and I’m struggling turning it into gravy as I find 1 stock cube salty and it also doesnt look great I’ve just turned it into stock then on the stove added cornflour could u please give me an idea what I’m doing wrong loving eating low format and your blog is my daily go to for inspiration keep up the great blog xxx

    1. Ellen,
      Thanks for your question. We aren’t very fond of stock cubes as they typically have poor flavor and too much salt. Our low-FODMAP Happy Soup Bases are hand crafted and are absolutely delicious, unlike most brands. They are made with real chicken and beef for superb flavor, and work beautifully in recipes, or just to drink the soup alone. You can click on our products page, or follow the above link to shop. Good luck!

  2. I’m very confused how this is considered low fodmap as Worcestershire has onions in it. I have to follow a very strict no onion diet or I have a severe allergic reaction. Could you please clarify this for me?

    1. Hi Lina,
      The low-FODMAP diet is not necessarily a FODMAP ‘free’ diet. Therefore, Worcestershire sauce is low-FODMAP in serving sizes of 2 tablespoons. For this recipe, with multiple servings, the amount of onion would be very small and therefore tolerable.
      For a serious ‘allergy’, we suggest omitting this ingredient, and not sure the gravy would be as tasty as a result. Good luck!

    2. Hi, I have onion and garlic allergy. If you enjoy mushrooms, perhaps boil them with your chicken broth. Hope this helps out.

      1. Hi Madison,
        FODMAPs are WATER SOLUBLE. If you boil them in broth then you will STILL BE EATING THEM. That is not recommended for mushroom flavor, it is NOT LOW-FODMAP. Instead, we suggest an infused oil. Thanks for your comment- we hope you get this note!
