Low(ish) carb gravy!

Just followed an excellent suggestion on the net: put one chicken in crockpot on top of onions, celery, etc. as standard. Cook chicken. After removing chicken from crockpot, pour off most of the broth, until there's just enough to cover the veggies. Then, hit that mess with the immersion blender. Salt & spice to taste, and hey, presto! Flour-free, no-wierd-gums-or-starches, gravy!

...update. Works great when served hot; add more salt & seasonings first. Does not work for frozen & reheated meals; the solids separate out from the liquid.


  1. Hm, interesting... Never thought about doing it that way...

  2. It was a pleasure meeting you at lunch last Monday! I am going to try this, sounds delicious to me. There is a saying for motorcycle riders, that I think would apply to you as well...tweaked a little....Never fly faster than your angel can! Have a great week! : )
