An easy, 3 ingredient gluten free gravy recipe that's also dairy free. This tastes AMAZING! #GlutenFree #GlutenFreeGravy

If you’re like us, the holidays have been one of the most difficult challenges since starting a gluten free lifestyle. These are usually times when you get together with friends and family over incredible food that you’ve enjoyed with these same people for years or even decades.

Because so many of our memories are associated with food, changing what you’re able to eat can definitely have an emotional impact on the holidays! Learning to adapt favorite recipes and navigate social events can really help bring some normalcy into life after a gluten free diagnosis such as Celiac Disease or food allergies.

This year, I want to share one of our favorite holiday hacks: an easy 3 ingredient gluten free gravy recipe that is also dairy-free. The secret to this creamy, flavorful gravy? Vivian’s Live Again Chicken Soup mix.

This is a gravy you can serve to your guests and no one will ever guess that it’s gluten free!  My kids just couldn’t get enough and kept asking when we could have it again.

The good news is, this gravy is ready in less than 5 minutes! Having a time-saver like that when you’re putting all the finishing touches on your big holiday feast makes life so much easier. 

Vivian’s Live Again products are produced in a dedicated gluten free facility that is also free from eggs, nuts, milk, and peanuts.

While I usually share gluten free recipes that are also free from soy, please note that Vivian’s Live Again chicken soup mix does contain soy, but is dairy and gluten free.

    Do you have a substitute item that could be used in place of te Vivian’s Creamy Chicken Flavor Soup Mix? I don’t have enough time to get the item here and can’t find it locally.

      Hi Jenney, unfortunately I don’t have a substitute. Vivian’s is the key ingredient that I used to formulate the recipe and I haven’t tried it with anything else. I’m sorry! Hoping you can get some for next time as it is a great recipe.

      Unfortunately, the Vivian’s mix contains soy. If making a soy free gravy, I like to just use a favorite recipe and sub Better Batter GF flour for the regular flour 🙂
