If you’ve seen some of my recent posts then you will know that I am now the official food blogger for the Cow’s Milk Protein Allergy Support Charity. CMPA Support are a wonderful charity; their aims are to raise awareness of the allergy at all levels, so that future generations of CMPA babies (& their families) shouldn’t have to suffer; and to provide information, support and practical advice to parents/carers at whichever stage of the CMPA journey they are on. You can find CMPA Support on Facebook and join one of their many Facebook support groups. I publish one food related blog post per week on behalf of CMPA Support and I am very excited to be a part of such an amazing charity.
Before discovering my son has cow’s milk protein allergy and is soya intolerant, my favourite gravy was Bisto Original Gravy Powder. However it is labeled as a may contain milk and soya and unfortunately my son reacts to it. Since then I have made my own gravy using Comptons gravy salt and it’s actually really easy, so I want to share the recipe for those who are struggling to find a dairy and soya free gravy mix.
- 1 heaped tablespoon cornflour mixed with a little cold water
- 1 teaspoon gravy salt
- 1 vegetable stock cube
- 400ml boiled water
- 1 tablespoon gravy browning
- 1. Mix the cornflour in a cup with a little cold water until smooth.
- 2. Dissolve the stock cube in 400ml of boiled water, stir in the gravy salt, gravy browning and cornflour.
- 3. Pour mixture into a saucepan over medium heat and stir continuously until thick.
- 4. Serve and enjoy!
- While stirring the gravy mix in the saucepan it will suddenly go thick and darker in colour, this is when the gravy is ready and it's important to remove it from the heat at this point otherwise the gravy will start to form lumps.

Recently I have received a lot of questions on our Facebook page about the symptoms of cow’s milk protein allergy and I think it would be great if we can share our questions and support each other on this journey. I have created a group on Facebook so we all have somewhere we can discuss and support each other in regards to living with cow’s milk protein allergy. Please take the time to read the group description. It is a closed group so, only members can see and reply to posts.
