Possible to make a roux using flour and something besides butter?

Ms Ghost | Nov 12, 2006 07:48 PM

Am making Thanksgiving dinner for a group that includes one person who is lactose intolerant, so I think butter is out. What else have you used as a gravy base? Would something like Smart Balance work? Or does that have a different melting/combining with flour consistency than "real" fat??!! Any help would be appreciated!
