Nomtastic Paleo Thanksgiving: Umami Gravy Video

You know it’s true: turkey without gravy is like Buffy without Angel (or Spike, if you’re into bloodsucking Billy Idol impersonators). If you’re making my Butterflied Big Bird this Thanksgiving, it’d be a crime not to serve it with my Umami Gravy. According to ancient Chinese wisdom, great gravy promotes family harmony. (I may have made that up.)

This gravy is full of savoriness owing to its ingredients: meaty bone broth, tomato paste, dried and fresh mushrooms, and fish sauce. (Yes, fish sauce. Don’t worry—the gravy isn’t fishy in the slightest.) You can prepare the gravy ahead of time, and refrigerate or freeze it. Reheat it on Thanksgiving Day, and ladle this umami-packed sauce on EVERYTHING.

Added bonus? It’s super easy to make! Watch this video I shot with Whole Foods, read up on my step-by-step recipe, and get ready to break out your immersion blender:

And stay tuned! I’ve got yet another Turkey Day prep video to share with you—along with a countdown post that’ll help you with your Nomtastic Paleo Thanksgiving planning. Thanksgiving dinner’s gonna be a breeze this year!

About Michelle Tam

Hello! My name is Michelle Tam, and I love to eat. I think about food all the time. It borders on obsession. I’ve always loved the sights and smells of the kitchen. My mother was (and is) an excellent cook, and as a kid, I was her little shadow as she prepared supper each night. From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
