20. Sage Gravy
2 tablespoons butter
3 yellow onions, diced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
Sea salt (to taste)
2 tablespoons gluten-free flour
3 cups gluten-free turkey (or chicken) broth
1 cup turkey drippings
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon fresh sage – minced
1 teaspoon white pepper
Place a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat to melt the butter. Add onions, garlic and a pinch of salt, and sauté for about 3 minutes.
Before the butter begins to brown, slowly whisk in the gluten-free flour. Sauté until a light “paste” forms, then continue to cook the “starchiness” out of the flour, about 3 minutes.
Slowly drizzle a small amount of the turkey broth into the butter. Whisk to incorporate, then repeat until all stock is added. Add remaining ingredients and simmer until the gravy has reached desired consistency. Remove from heat, cool for 5 minutes, and strain into serving boat, making sure bay leaves are left behind.
