    Think soup or stew made with freeze-dried meats, vegetables, and alternative thickeners. Potato starch maybe, if you can find any made on dedicated grain-free equipment. There's also learning to make reductions of broth, stock, juice, etc, so that you don't have to rely on thickeners.

    I wonder if allergies are really more of a problem or we are just reaping the benefits of modern life and medicine? Now people who would have died of anaphylaxis are surviving to reproduce more allergic kids.

    Although the Mrs & I don't have an allergic reaction to wheat flour, she just really doesn't like using wheat flour or cornstarch as a thickener. Since I'm a guy, sometimes I just need a gravy (she would be fine without). We have found that Arrow Root fills the bill rather well. It's about the same consistency as cornstarch, and a little bit goes a long way.
    Prior to finding out about lactose issues, I used to make a great sour cream gravy, but alas, those days are (mostly) gone.
    Someday I'm going to pull my life together. But that day is not today. Today I'm driving a stolen police car.

    Seven days after the SHTF the new bloodsport will be watching an organic health food junkie and a vegan fighting over a can of ravioli.

    LOL! Can it be the extra-cheap, nasty ravioli that even kids won't eat?
