Mustard and miso paste turn turkey drippings into a gluten-free gravy in minutes with a blender.

"It has the consistency of a great gravy without any flour. You can make in a pinch the day-of with pan drippings straight from the oven."

*White miso paste is typically gluten-free because it's made from fermented soybeans and white rice, but other kinds of miso paste may not be gluten-free so always check labels if you’re making this for someone with a food allergy.

Shopping Tip: You can buy schmaltz (rendered chicken fat) at some grocery stores, particularly around the holidays.
