Dairy-Free Country White Gravy


Because you can’t have Southern favorites like Chicken Fried Steak without this gem.

Dairy-Free Country White Gravy

Prep Time: 20 minutes   Cook time: 5 minutes   Total time: 25 minutes

Yield: A little more than 2 cups


1 lb bacon

1 cup full-fat coconut milk

1 cup water

4 tbsp potato starch

1-2 tsp chili powder

1 tsp sea salt

Black pepper, to taste



1.  Cook the bacon.  You just need the grease from it for this recipe, so save the bacon for something else.  I’m sure you won’t mind.  If you’re making my Chicken Fried Steak recipe, the grease left over from cooking the steaks will work perfectly (and probably better).

2.  Add coconut milk and water to the bacon grease, still cooking on medium heat.  Keep a whisk going through it as you add the starch, 1 tbsp at a time, to the liquid.  Mix in the chili powder and salt, along with as much pepper as you want (it’s hard to have too much) and whisk together evenly.

3.  The gravy will thicken quicker than a traditional recipe, but if it’s having trouble for whatever reason, stop whisking for a few seconds and allow it to sit on the heat.

4.  Once desired gravy consistency forms, remove from the heat and throw this onto whatever you want!
