Don’t let following the low FODMAP diet stop you from enjoying your Thanksgiving when you can have this delicious Low FODMAP gravy.

Many gravies are thickened with flour, which is a no-no on the low FODMAP diet. Our recipe uses cornstarch, so it is FODMAP friendly and gluten-free!

Many store-bought chicken stocks use onions and celery in their recipes, which are considered to be high FODMAP. So, make sure to use a FODMAP-friendly stock (affiliate link) for this recipe, or you can make your own!

What do I need to make low FODMAP gravy?

  • Liquid- this could be drippings from the turkey, low FODMAP stock or a combination of both
  • Cornstarch
  • Butter
  • Salt and Pepper

How to make low FODMAP gravy

This recipe is as easy as it gets. Mix the liquid, cornstarch, and butter in a pan, heat it up, and whisk until everything is combined. You can use turkey drippings, stock, or a combination of both.

If you make this gravy ahead of time, and it thickens too much, simply reheat and add a splash or two of chicken stock and you are good to go!
