Non-dairy gravy mix ideas?

Does anybody know of any gravy mix that doesn't contain dairy??? I need something for times when I'm not cooking meat to get drippings (ie. gravy to put over the 20 lbs of breaded chicken tenders I just bought from zaycon). I have made gravy out of Better than Bullion broth (the Costco version is dairy-free) but it wasn't awesome tasting. Wondering if anybody has any other ideas.

I always make my own gravy and it's easy to sub almond, coconut or any other milk for dairy.
In a pan I use equal parts of butter/oil (I actually use a combo) and flour. I let it go for a few minutes to get flavor and cook the flour out.
Then add enough chicken broth (homemade or I use Kitchen Basics) and/or milk of choice to the pan. Let it thicken for a few minutes and you have gravy!
If its too watery you add a little cornstarch/arrowroot or just let it reduce in the stove.

thats how I always do it too... I started it that way when i had to go dairy free, now I think the only gravy I make that has milk in it is sausage gravy for biscuits...

If you are not regularly cooking meat to use almond milk (or a sub) you could use some broth from soup bones (we get them for free when we by a cow) and freeze the broth in ice cube trays. I just take them out and melt them in a pan then make the gravy.

Same as everybody else so far. I use broth- I usually use granule bouillon (a different brand then the bouillon broth your using). I use earth's balance or olive oil with flour and then add the reconstituted broth. Its the same way I make pot pie and chicken and dumpling soup base as well- just with less flour.
