I want to make liver and bacon in the week, I would usually use flour to thicken the gravy. What can I used instead?

I've sort of thickened in the past with carrots and celeriac cooked to really soft in the gravy and then pushed them through a sieve and mixing it all together. I thickened a soup once by accident by blitzing some chicken breast that I'd put into it.

Arrowroot powder. Mix it in a little cold water first then add to gravy and heat.

I have arrowroot powder, not sure I can be doing with the mashed veg option on a weeknight

You can use cream as a thickener - you need to make a jus then add cream and boil it down.
