Finally figured out almond gravy...yippy
There is a restaurant in Portland that sells biscuits and almond gravy, and it is so good. Ever since I have lived in Bethel I have attempted to make this gravy, and everytime was a disgusting clump of ickyness. Greg reminds me that the only meal that he did not like was my biscuit and gravy. Well last night I finally made it right, and it tasted just like the restaurant. As Martha says, "It's a good thing."
The recipe is simple..figures:
2 T butter or oil
3 T flour (white or whole wheat)
2 c milk or vegetable stock (or even water, if you don't have anything else)
1 c ground toasted nuts (cashews, almonds, pecans...)
Directions Heat the butter or oil in the saucepan, until melted/hot. Whisk in flour and stir continuously for one minute.
Remove from heat for 2-3 minutes.
Return saucepan to stove and whisk in the milk and nuts. Simmer, stirring constantly, until thickened, 3-5 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper and serve.
