Rice Flour Thickened Gravy


Total Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 6



- 4 tablespoons Chico Rice Brown Rice Flour

- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (or dairy-free butter for a vegan option)

- 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth

- 1 cup milk (or dairy-free milk)

- Salt and pepper, to taste

- Optional: herbs and spices for extra flavor (e.g., sage, thyme, or paprika)



1. Prepare the Roux: In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add Chico Rice Brown Rice Flour, stirring constantly to create a smooth paste. Continue cooking for about 2-3 minutes until the roux turns a light, golden brown. Be cautious not to burn it.

2. Gradually Add Liquids: Slowly pour in the chicken or vegetable broth while whisking continuously to avoid lumps. Allow the mixture to simmer gently for a few minutes until it thickens.

3. Incorporate the Milk: Pour in the milk (or dairy-free milk) while whisking to create a silky, lump-free consistency. Continue to cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until your gravy reaches your desired thickness.

4. Season to Taste: Season the gravy with salt and pepper to your liking. If desired, add herbs or spices for extra flavor. Common choices include a pinch of sage, thyme, or paprika, depending on your dish.

5. Serve: Pour this delectable rice flour thickened gravy over your favorite dishes, such as roasted meats, mashed potatoes, biscuits, or vegetables, and enjoy the rich, comforting flavor.


Storage: Any leftover rice flour thickened gravy can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. When reheating, gently warm the gravy on the stovetop while stirring occasionally to restore its smooth texture.


Indulge in a velvety, gluten-free gravy that adds a delightful touch to your meals, made even more exceptional with the exquisite quality of Chico Rice's Brown Rice Flour.
