if you're not making chicken or something that gives you juices or stock, then get broth (or make some with boullion), and add either cornstarch, sweet rice flour, or potato flour, making a slurry with a little bit of cold water first, before adding to the hot broth/stock. (I didn't go gluten-free until I was 25 or so, but have *never* made gravy with flour. didn't know you could until I was 18 or so! :) )

I use light buckwheat flour to thicken gravy, since I am intolerant to rice, corn and potato! But Tiffany is right, you need to have some meat stock.

like tarnalb, i've also only made gluten-free gravy. i usually use a cornstarch or amaranth flour, depending on what i am making.
