aka AFC House Gravy for restaurant or home use.

Call this MISO PEAR GRAVY. It’s new, exciting, familiar with a hint of exotic. Trust it. Put the gravy on the bottom, over the top, to the side or in a dipping container.

In my fist animal-free restaurant that’s the only gravy I need for all purposes which require a gravy. That doesn’t mean it can’t be altered to express different views with different dishes. This however remains the true base: MISO PEAR. Remember it!

FAT-FREE too! A gravy? A house gravy? Yup.

Makes 4-3/4 cups

4 c. water

2 T. white miso paste

2 T. Spice Time Imitation Chicken Bouillon Powder

2 t. dry mustard

1 t. turmeric

2 t. garlic powder

1 t. ground fennel seed

fresh ground black pepper

1/2 t. mild Hatch chili powder

15 oz. can sliced pears in extra light syrup including liquid

2 T. cornstarch

salt to taste

1 T. white wine vinegar

1- In medium saucepan, over medium-low heat combine water, miso and bouillon. Bring to slow boil stirring to dissolve miso with the powder bouillon.

2- Add mustard, turmeric, garlic, fennel, black pepper and chili powder. Stir as needed as it simmers.

3- Place pears including liquid from can in blender container and blend till smooth – 30 seconds x 2. Pause, then blend another 30 seconds till very smooth.

4- Add cornstarch to the pears and immediately pulse and hold till thoroughly incorporated. Pause, then blend again.

5- Bring gravy to boil, then add pear-cornstarch blend, whisking till it begins to thicken.

6- Lower heat and simmer, whisking occasionally, for about 20 minutes – long enough to develop a round richness.

7- Salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat, bring to room temperature and pour into tightly covered containers and refrigerate till ready to use in any recipe calling for gravy.
