This gravy goes great with the Roasted Turkey With Herbs also from South Beach Diet. It uses the roasted shallots, walnut oil and white wine for a full-flavored gravy.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 3/4 cup shallots from roast turkey, chopped
- 1/4 cup sauvignon blanc or other full-bodied white wine
- 1/2 cup chicken stock
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch or arrowroot
- 1/4 tablespoon walnut oil
Remove drippings from roasting pan to medium saucepan and straddle roasting pan across two burners. Heat pan on high and add shallots, sage, and wine. Bring pan contents to a boil, stirring to loosen cooked-on bits.
Continue stirring and reduce by about half. Remove from heat and add to saucepan with drippings. Skim off as much of the fat as possible and return to a light boil. Stir together chicken stock with cornstarch or arrowroot to make a thin paste. Reduce heat to simmer and whisk cornstarch mixture into saucepan. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally and season with salt, pepper and walnut oil - 1 teaspoon at a time, to taste. Serve with turkey.
This recipe is optimal for Phase 2 of the South Beach Diet.
