Most of us aren’t ready to give up our beloved gravy in the name of health! Well, you don’t have to. Paleo gravy tastes good and actually adds nutrients to the meal. Most gravy recipes are full of empty, fattening calories!
I added onions and garlic to my Paleo gravy, both for their flavor and health benefits. Onions and garlic have powerful antioxidants in them, which help to boost your immune system. That’s especially important in the fall and winter!
Here’s the recipe:
- 1 1/2 Cups Broth (use the drippings from your turkey; see note*)
- 1Tbsp Potato Starch
- 1/2 Cup Finely Diced Onion
- 3 Cloves Garlic Minced
- 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
- Sea Salt and Pepper to Taste
- Herbs for Garnish
Sauté the onion in a medium ceramic non-stick sauce pan over medium heat until it starts to change color. I’ve found that you really only need a tiny bit of fat to sauté your veggies in. You actually don’t need any fat if you water sauté, but I think the coconut oil adds some richness to this recipe. Add the garlic and cook for another minute. Sprinkle the potato starch over the veggies and mix it in. Add the stock and bring it to a boil. Simmer until it reaches the desired consistency. Taste the gravy to see if you want to add salt and pepper. Enjoy!
*If you use the drippings from your turkey, you may want to use a fat separator. You want the broth, not the fat!
