KETO GRAVY SAUCE
This gravy sauce makes a great keto-friendly comfort food!
Just in time for Thanksgiving, I tried a gravy sauce to coat leftover turkey slices.
It’s good enough to eat by a spoonful but you should save it for days when comfort food is needed.
HOW TO MAKE KETO GRAVY
Keto gravy can be made in a similar way to traditional gravy sauce. However, we will thicken the sauce by blending the onions with a gluten-free thickener.
This recipe uses 1/2 cup chopped onion. It has 7 carbs. You can reduce the amount of onion by 1/4 cup, or just leave them out if you’re super strict keto.
I believe the flavor of the onions is worth the carbs. You won’t eat the entire gravy boat in one sitting.
I wouldn’t recommend it!
STEPS TO MAKE GRAVY
- Sauté onion in butter until tender and fragrant
- First, add broth or stock to heavy cream.
- Add cream cheese
- Mix ingredients
- Put ingredients back into skillet
- Season with Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper
- Thickener (Psyllium Husk is my preference)
- Add butter or fresh herbs to the top.

HOW TO THICKEN KETO GRAVY
The easiest way to thicken traditional gravy would be to use flour to make a paste. However, this is not the keto way.
You don’t have to worry, I have an alternative to flour, cornstarch, or arrowroot that is delicious and has zero carbs. It also comes with all the thickness you need.
First, it is important to know that gravy can be thickened when made.To evaporate water from the stock, heat the ingredients over low heat.
Although it works, we are impatient. This is why whisking flour in gives us instant satisfaction because it thickens almost instantly.
These are some ways to thicken gravy without the use of flour, cornstarch, or arrowroot.
- Full-fat Cream Cheese
- Yogurt and Sour Cream
- Guar gum, Xanthan Gum
- Psyllium Husk powder
I tried all of them, but I ended up using 1 tablespoon cream cheese and 1 teaspoon psyllium powder. This combination gave me the gravy I wanted with the right thickness.
After the ingredients have been simmered, add your choice. To get the consistency you like, start with one tablespoon of yogurt.
Guar gum or xanthan chew will be required to make 1 teaspoon and 1/2 teaspoon respectively.
Each will thicken quickly just like flour. Start with less and increase as the mixture bulks up.
Note; A tablespoon of cornstarch, a great thickener, contains 7 grams of carbs. This amount might work if you have some room.Macronutrients.
