Vegetarian Or Vegan Gravy Recipe

Make your own vegetarian or vegan gravy in minutes this Christmas. Simply replace the wheat flour with rice flour or gluten-free flour of your choice, and replace shoyu soy sauce with tamari to make your gravy gluten-free. The mixed peppercorns really balance the flavours, but you can use black peppercorns too.
