Tips for Making Lump-Free Gravy Recipes:
1.    Whisk! Whisk! Whisk! It makes a difference. If you don't have one...run out now and buy one!
2.    In a cup or a bowl, mix several tablespoons of flour with 1/2 C of the stock, cold from the refrigerator. Use a whisk and make sure this mixture is absolutely smooth.
3.    Put the drippings and whatever amount of fat you want.  Use zero to 1/2 C. depending on how much gravy you are making and how rich you want it. Add vegetable stock to the drippings and bring to a good solid simmer. In a nice thin even stream, add the cold flour/stock mixture to the pan. Use that whisk in a nice steady motion; too fast and it will encourage lumps.
4.    To control the thickness of the gravy: if it's too thin, have a stand-by of additional flour and cold water or white wine mixture; if it's too thick, add white wine or water or stock.
