How Can I thicken Mushroom Gravy?
There are a few ways to thicken mushroom gravy. You can use a roux with butter and flour or you can use a gluten free and whole3o such as arrowroot starch or tapioca flour.
What is Arrowroot Starch?
Arrowroot is an easily digested starch extracted from the roots of the arrowroot plant, Maranta arundinacea. It is gluten free and can be used as a direct substitute for cornstarch for folks with corn allergies. It has no flavor of its own, so can be used to thicken any sauce, soup, stew, or pudding. – Source: Bob’s Red Mill
Arrowroot starch is completely natural and makes a great thickener that is paleo and whole30 compliant.
