Enhance Your Gravy With Veggies

When you roast meats and use onions, celery, garlic and carrots to enhance the flavor, be sure to save all those veggies for when you make gravy. Just push them through a sieve and after defatting the pan juices, add those "pureed" veggies back to the natural meat juices (au jus).


Very often, you will not need to add flour or corn starch to thicken the gravy. It will be thick enough with just the addition of the veggies. What a wonderful flavor it will have, too, especially if those veggies have a little caramelization going on with them. You will not be adding more calories either which is another plus for all of us.
