AIP Special Gravy Sauce
Yield 4 Servings
1 stalk celery
3/4 medium onion
3 cloves garlic
1 sprig rosemary
5 leaves sage
5 sprigs thyme
2 cups bone broth
Dash of sea salt
Step 1: Prepare the leeks, celery, carrots, and apple by washing and cutting into small pieces. The carrots will take the longest to cook, so make sure the slices are not too thick. Peel and cut the onion, and peel the garlic.
Step 2: If you are roasting meat, place the meat in the middle of the casserole and add the vegetables, the apple, and all the herbs around. If you are not roasting meat, you can just add everything in without the meat. Roast for 30 minutes in the middle of oven on 250°F.
Step 3: Add 1 cup of bone broth to the vegetables and toss. Roast for another 30 minutes or until the carrots are soft.
Step 4: Take out the thyme and rosemary sprigs. Pour the juice and veggies through a fine mesh strainer into a saucepan to use as a base for the gravy.
Step 5: Purée veggies in a blender until very smooth and add about half to the base sauce. Add 1 cup of broth and dash of sea salt. Taste test to see if you want to add more broth or salt.
Step 6: (Optional) For a thicker gravy, add more of the veggie purée.
Step 7: Enjoy!

If you want a thinner sauce, add water or chicken broth until you reach your desired consistency. If your sauce turns out too thin, add more veggie puree.
If you tolerate red wine well, feel free to add in 2 tbsp. of red wine when adding in the broth. You can add more than 2 tbsp of wine if you’d like. I love using Dry Farm Wines when cooking recipes. It’s organically grown and free from added sugars and additives.
Dr Jockers Comments
This AIP special gravy sauce is a great tasting recipe that uses ingredients that are well tolerated by people with autoimmune and chronic inflammatory conditions. Your family will love the great savory flavor of this gravy.
The AIP or autoimmune paleo diet is a specific food elimination based nutrition plan that removes gluten, grains, processed sugar, dairy, eggs, corn, soy, nuts, seeds, and nightshade vegetables. Many people with chronic inflammatory- and autoimmune diseases have seen great improvements using this very restrictive nutrition plan.
Unfortunately, it can be hard to find tasty recipes that are AIP approved. This recipe uses bone broth which is rich in collagen protein and key amino acids such as glycine, proline and hydroxyproline which help support healthy joints, skin, hair, nails and gut lining.
For individuals following an AIP diet, I would recommend using a high quality activated enzyme complex with most meals to help improve digestive health and avoid unwanted gut inflammation. Fully activated HoloZyme reduces occasional gut related complaints including gas, bloating, loose stools, undigested foods, tummy pain, and cramping.
