Bone Broth Gravy
Don’t let all those turkey drippings go to waste — and don’t you dare buy the canned stuff. Fortify your gravy with Osso Good Bone Broth for a healthful, delicious twist. Go ahead, have a second helping of mashed potatoes!
2–3 cups of Osso Good Chicken Broth
3 tablespoons of butter
½ cup of flour (gluten-free works great!)
Pour your turkey drippings from the pan into a gravy separator or a large glass measuring cup and allow the contents to settle so the fat separates. Either pour off the fat using the separator, or spoon off the top layer of fat.
Setting the pan over medium heat, add the butter and scrape up any bits from the pan. Add the flour and stir into the butter, cooking until the roux is golden brown. Turn off the heat and slowly whisk the drippings into the pan along with 2–3 cups of gravy until you have about 4 cups of liquid total. Turn the heat up to high and continue to stir and whisk until the liquid comes to a boil. Continue cooking until it reaches your desired thickness. Taste and flavor with additional salt or pepper, if necessary. Keep over a very low heat until ready to serve.
Cheesy Pumpkin Roasted Vegetables
Pumpkin puree turns regular roasted vegetables into a decadent Thanksgiving dish. Got leftovers? Add in a few servings of your favorite gluten-free pasta to make this a full meal the next day!
15 oz pumpkin puree
3 cups cauliflower florets
3 cups broccoli florets
3 cups trimmed and quartered Brussels sprouts
2–4 tablespoons olive oil
1 ½ tablespoons unsalted butter
¼ cup minced onion
2 tablespoons all-purpose or GF flour
1 ½ cups milk — unsweetened almond or soy milk works great
1 cup Osso Good Bone Broth
5 oz grated sharp cheddar cheese
3 oz grated gouda cheese
¼ teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
Salt & pepper to taste
Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees F. On 2 baking sheets lined with foil, combine the vegetables with 2–4 tablespoons of olive oil, salt, and pepper until well coated. Roast until golden, 20–35 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
Meanwhile, in a large Dutch oven set over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and cook until soft and translucent. Add in the 2 tablespoons of flour, mixing into the butter. Cook until the roux is a golden color. Slowly whisk in the milk and bone broth until all of the flour is dissolved in the liquid. Bring to a boil and cook 4–5 minutes until the sauce is thickened. Stir in the pumpkin puree and nutmeg.
Remove from heat and stir in the cheeses. Add the roasted vegetables and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve and enjoy!
