3 Thanksgiving Cooking Questions Answered:
1. How do you thicken gluten-free gravy? Potato starch creates velvety rich gravy. Arrowroot is another good alternative. Whisk starches with broth in separate bowl and then add to simmering gravy until desired thickness is achieved.
2. What is the secret to restaurant quality gravies, sauces, and soups? High quality, gluten-free demi-glaces, like the ones from More than Gourmet, adds a rich complexity and finishing flavor to any recipe. Vegan? More than Gourmet makes a Classic Roasted Vegetable Demi-Glace that will transform vegetarian entrees.
3. How do you prevent gluten-free stuffing from being gummy? Before adding gluten-free bread into a stuffing recipe, cut into breadcrumbs and toast lightly. Then proceed as per your favorite recipe. If using gluten-free corn bread, cut into cubes and leave out over night to dry out.
