    Ever heard of poutine? It’s made with French fries, cheese curds and gravy. And it’s just as good as it sounds! This gluten-free poutine is just like the real thing. Maybe better!

    My gravy that I made following this recipe was more like the consistency of mashed potatoes. It was good and tasty but… Not what I expected. I ended up doubling the amount of broth, and it was still like mashed potatoes… Just more. I also added thyme, garlic powder, and triple the amount of black pepper, because initially it tasted like slightly chickeny flour.

    Update – I’ve now made this recipe CORRECTLY and such a great gravy. Use it at least once a week now. Slowly combine, mix well!

    1. Thank you for sharing your review with us Kleo!

      Sounds like there may have been an issue with the cornstarch slurry when added to the main broth. We recommend adding in slowly gradually to get the texture you prefer for your gravy.

      We love using thyme & garlic powder in too, especially when having with chicken/roast beef!

      I had the same issue. I added double the liquid. The gravy was really good though. Next time I make it I will cut the roux in half.
