Turkey Gravy...Lightened Up


  • Tie rosemary, thyme and sage together with a piece of kitchen string; set aside.
  • In large saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add giblets; sauté until browned (about 3-5 minutes).
  • Add in onions, celery, carrots, garlic and poultry seasoning; salt and pepper to taste. Continue sautéing until onions are softened (about 3-5 minutes).
  • Add wine and deglaze pan by scraping any pieces from bottom. Add in fresh herbs and chicken broth. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to simmer. Simmer 20-30 minutes or until liquid is reduced by a third.
  • Strain liquid from vegetables and giblets. Allow liquid to cool; skim off any fat that rises to the top. Discard vegetables and giblets. (Steps 1-5 can be completed up to 2 days ahead and refrigerated).
  • Sprinkle flour into a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Brown flour stirring constantly. When flour starts to smell toasted, slowly add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to create a paste. Continue cooking until flour is golden brown in color.
  • Slowly whisk in reserved broth and pan juices (that have been skimmed of fat). Bring to a boil, whisking constantly; boil 1 minute. Adjust seasonings to taste.
