Dairy Free Sausage Gravy
a thick, creamy dairy free sausage gravy that uses almondmilk and ghee. Perfect for your biscuits and gravy, or over loads of vegetables!
  1. brown the sausage with the onion, worcestershire sauce, and pepper
  2. create a roux: add in the ghee, once melted, slowly add in the flour (see notes for gluten free/paleo/ whole30 options) while stirring constantly. You need to stir to keep lumps from forming. Continue to stir until the flour appears browned.
  3. Add in almond milk (See recipe notes for substitution suggestions), and add in any salt and pepper to taste – see recipe notes for my suggestion.
  4. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.
  5. While the gravy is simmering, create an arrowroot slurry by mixing the arrowroot and water in a small bowl. Make sure there are no lumps.
  6. Slowly pour in the arrowroot slurry, stirring constantly. Simmer uncovered for 5-10 more minutes until desired consistency is reached (see recipe notes). Enjoy.
Recipe Notes

Other options for almond milk that may work. Please let me know if you try these how it works out!

  • original unsweetened cashewmilk
  • oat milk
  • rice milk (though you may need additional arrowroot slurry)

coconut milk is not recommended as you will pick up the coconut taste.

We did not add in any extra salt because the ghee I make uses salted butter. (for the ghee recipe click here)

Paleo/Whole30 Flour Substitutions – these have not yet been tested by me but is a typical substitution I’ve used in other roux-based sauces that work well. If you try these please let me know in the comments how it works.

  • 1/4 cup almond flour with 2tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup almond flour with 2tbsp tapioca flour

Whole30 Paleo Serving Suggestions (instead of biscuits or other SWYPO things)

  • roasted potatoes of any variety
  • eggs over medium or easy
  • mixed with toasted cauli-rice (click here for recipe!)
  • salmon cakes – yea I know it sounds weird but trust me
  • spiralized veggies, it’s like a creamy breakfast pasta

Note for Whole30 or Paleo that your worcestershire sauce  and italian sausage are both compliant. If you cannot find any worcestershire sauce, substitute coconut aminos.
