Elimination Diet Gravy

If, like me, you are following the Dr. Sears regimen and living off of turkey and potatoes, then some good old-fashioned gravy is exactly what you need to stave off starvation and culinary boredom.  Yes, you can make a pretty decent gravy with just the ingredients from the list.  First, take yourself down to the health food store and get some rice flour from the bulk bins.  Then, roast your turkey (or if you're lucky like me, let your wonderful mother-in-law smoke one for you) and save all the drippings.   I got enough gravy from this recipe to last me a few days, and I especially liked it poured over turkey and rice.  Time to sauce it up!

Elimination Diet Turkey Gravy

All fat and drippings from a roasted turkey
Rice flour, as needed
Rice milk, as needed
Salt & pepper to taste

1.  Put your pan drippings in a clear container and refrigerate until the fat is clearly separated at the top.

2.  Set a small saucepan over medium heat.  Skim the turkey fat from the drippings put it in the pan, stirring until smooth.  Add rice flour, 1 Tbsp at a time, and stir with a whisk until it has a pasty consistency.

3.  While whisking, slowly pour in all of the remaining turkey juices.  Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly.

4.  Add rice milk to get your desired thickness and taste.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

5.  Pour it all over your plate.  Enjoy eating a meal that actually has some flavor.
